Leitrim District Superintendent Kevin English told the Leitrim Observer, “Gardai disrupted the commission of a serious crime in Manorhamilton on Monday morning.”
He stated suspicious activity had been detected in the town and a grey Hyundai car fled at high speed.
In a follow-up search two vehicles, stolen in burglaries in Northern Ireland, were recovered close to Manorhamilton town centre.
