Gardaí attached to the Clontarf Detective Unit have recovered laptops valued at €30,000 following a search of premises in the Dublin 22 area on Monday, December 13.

During the course of this search, 21 suspected stolen laptops were seized by Gardaí.

The combined value of the items recovered is believed to be in excess of €30,000. Cash, documents and a number of mobile phones were also seized.

Gardaí said in a statement that “preliminary enquiries have revealed that a number of these laptops were stolen following burglaries in the Dublin Metropolitan Region within the past two months.

“So far, 14 of the laptops have been matched with eight reported burglaries.”

A man, aged in his 30s, was arrested in connection with this seizure and was detained at Clontarf Garda Station on Tuesday.

He has since been released without charge and Gardaí say that a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Gardaí will be reuniting the recovered property with the relevant owners in the coming days.
