Men in Court after Monaghan burglary

They were arrested at the weekend.

Two men have been charged following a burglary in the Carrickmacross area on Saturday.

The men were arrested on the M1 motorway near Drogheda that night after their vehicle came to the attention of Gardaí.

A high-speed chase took place before the suspect vehicle suffered a puncture. The suspects then took off on foot.

Aged in their 20s and late teens, they were detained under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2007 at Drogheda Garda station. They have since been charged and are due to appear before Drogheda District Court this morning.

Gardaí say investigations are ongoing.

It’s understood nothing was taken during the burglary but damage was caused to the premises.
