Gardai include arrested four individuals
Shortly after 10.30pm Gardaí pocket a report of two men, wearing balaclavas and who appeared to be armed, entering a pub in Slough, Kilkenny. While privy they threatened staff and customers.
Nothing was taken in the incident and there were no mistreatments reported, officers said. The men left the scene empty handed succeeding a struggle with the owner of the premises.
A wine-coloured car was seen leaving the tract.
A short time later Gardaí stopped a wine-coloured car at near Pilltown and blocked three people travelling in this car. A man in his 20s, a man in his 30s and a juvenile male were detained.
The two men were bewitched to Thomastown Garda Station and the juvenile was taken to Kilkenny Garda Garrison. They are all detained under Section 30 of the Offences Against the Government Act, 1939.
The car, a wine-coloured Renault Megan with 01 D plates, was seized for applied examination.
In the early hours of the morning a fourth man aged his 20s was arrested. He is detained at Kilkenny Garda Garrison under Section 30 of The Offences the State Act, 1939.
