The incident saw specialist units including a dedicated team from a national anti-burglary unit involved. They arrested the men after they crashed in to a supermarket parking area in Naas, County Kildare this evening. 

Officers from the Garda Air Support Unit, the anti-burglary group, Armed Support Unit and other units were involved in the operation which came to an end tonight in Kildare at 8pm.

Sources have said that the gang are suspected of multiple burglaries in recent weeks in Kildare, Meath, Carlow, Kilkenny, and Tipperary.

It is understood the burglaries were at homes, businesses including a bookies and gardaí had begun to work on intelligence on the gang a number of weeks ago.

Sources have said that detectives had put an operation in place today to target the gang, who were driving a high powered Q7 Audi SUV.

The car was initially spotted in County Meath and then rammed a garda car in County Kildare.

The garda helicopter was called and a so-called “managed containment” operation was put in place. 

The men drove at high speed towards Naas where they lost control of the Audi on a roundabout and rolled the car through a hedge into a parking area of the supermarket. 

No members of the public were injured and the men were treated by paramedics and fire fighters at the scene for minor injuries. They have been arrested. 

A statement has been requested from the Garda Press Office.
