FOUR MEN HAVE been arrested in Lucan after gardaí intercepted the group following a robbery in Mullingar Co. Westmeath.

The men were in possession of jewellery along with what gardaí believe to be housebreaking implements.

The four men are all from Dublin. One is in his 60s, one is in his 20s and two others are in their 30s.

Gardaí believe the group left Dublin yesterday in a high-powered stolen vehicle and travelled to the Midlands region and committed burglaries.

The men were arrested yesterday evening and are being held at Mullingar Garda Station.

A winter phase of Operation Thor was issued to gardaí last week to prevent a predictable upsurge in burglaries which occurs during the winter months.

Detective superintendents have been told to gather intelligence regarding organised crime gangs who are travelling around the country, committing burglaries and using the motorway network to ensure speedy escape from crime scenes and to nominate suspects for targeting.
