Darragh Berry

As a result of investigations being undertaken in the course of the winter phase of ‘Operation Thor’, Gardaí have recovered jewellery and arrested two people in the Dublin area.

The Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau – who are targeting particular Organised Crime Groups – arrested a female aged 30 with a UK address and a male aged 23 with a Dublin address on the 25th January 2018.

The arrest was made on suspicion of handling property suspected to be stolen in the course of burglaries.

Both of the people arrested are currently detained at Tallaght Garda station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

During the course of this operation, jewellery with an estimated value of €100,000, believed to be stolen, was recovered.

A key aspect of the Winter Phase of ‘Operation Thor’ has been the targeting of organised crime gangs involved in burglaries.

A Garda spokesperson said: “An Garda Síochána encourages householders to be particularly vigilant during the winter months with most burglaries likely to occur between 5pm and 11pm. We would also encourage people to mark their property so if stolen and recovered it can be identified by the owner.”
