Three of the four men arrested on Wednesday morning last and who appeared before Naas District Court at 10.30am in relation to a series of robberies across Tipperary and the South East are due to appear in court in Nenagh next Friday.

The men, named as Mr Edward Collins with an address at No.15 Collinstown Cresent, Neilstown, Clondalkin, Co Dublin; Mr Michael Collins with an address at No.7-E Pearse House, Pearse St, Dublin 2, and Mr  Martin Collins with an address at 27 Woodford Drive, Clondalkin, Co, Dublin, currently are on bail under the condition that they not enter the jurisdictions of Co. Tipperary and Co. Kilkenny.

The accused were arrested after Gardaí from Co. Tipperary assisted by their colleagues from Co. Carlow and the Dublin Metropolitan Region’s Armed Support Unit, recovered stolen property, including a trailer, assorted power tools, and other assorted items, when carrying out a number of searches in the Clondalkin, Ballyfermot and Pearse St. areas of Dublin City during yesterday morning.

We understand that Mr Martin Collins and Mr Michael Collins both stand accused of theft from the Tippo International site, Thurles Road, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary on August 6th last; while Mr Michael Collins is also accused of theft at Railway Station, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, and with theft on August 13th last at the Turtulla Business Park, Turtulla, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

A fourth man as yet unnamed, arrested after the searches, remains in Garda custody.
