GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED two men in relation to three burglaries carried out in the Leixlip area of Co Kildare in the early hours of this morning.

Gardaí began conducting searches after receiving reports of burglaries in the Maynooth and Celbridge areas of Co Kildare.

During this search, a vehicle failed to stop for Gardaí when requested to do so.

Gardaí said that “a managed containment operation” ensued, which concluded when the vehicle came to a stop on the Cappagh Road, Dublin 11.

The occupants of the car, two men aged in 25 and 35, were arrested a short time later.

Both men were brought to Leixlip Garda Station where they are currently being detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
