TWO MEN HAVE been charged in connection with investigations into burglaries in the Co Louth area.

The men, aged 19 and 22 years, are due to appear before Dundalk District Court tomorrow morning at 10.30am.

The two men were arrested by gardaí in the Greenore area last night. Gardaí were responding to a burglary callout when two garda vehicles were rammed by a car in the Millgrange area of Carlingford.

Gardaí were uninjured in the incident, but the two patrol cars were damaged.

A garda spokesman said: “As part of Operation Thor, uniformed gardaí on patrol in the Carlingford area of Louth were alerted to a burglary in Willville, Carlingford. On arrival at the scene, gardaí recovered a car which had been stolen earlier that day.”

Officers were then alerted to another burglary in the area and were told a Toyota car had been stolen.

The spokesman added: “Gardaí from the Regional Response Unit assisted in this investigation and attempted to stop the car. The Toyota car then rammed two garda vehicles.”

The two men were detained at Dundalk Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 and remain in garda custody.

Comments have been closed as the men have been charged.
