13 people are due in court this morning in connection with burglaries in north Dublin.
It follows an investigation under Operation Thor focusing on the J District which includes Clontarf, Howth and Raheny Garda Stations.
Operation Thor actively targets organised crime gangs and repeat offenders through coordinated crime prevention and enforcement activity based on intelligence-led policing.
Those arrested are facing 35 charges, including burglary, trespass, possession of implements and articles used in thefts, robbery and unauthorised taking of vehicles and handling of stolen property, in connection with 28 incidents.
Detective Superintendent David Kennedy of the R and J Districts stated this morning that "the local communities of Raheny, Clontarf and Howth will continue to see visible focused patrols at specific times of day, targeting burglary-related crime."
"We take burglary very seriously. We understand that it can be both financially costly and emotionally devastating and will ensure every burglary and associated crime is appropriately investigated to the highest possible standard" he went on to say.
Detective Superintendent Kennedy has this advice for the public as the clocks go back and the nights draw in earlier.
"Please look out for anything or anyone suspicious in your neighbourhood - burglars often target properties near each other so reporting something happening in your street could prevent you or your neighbour from becoming the next victim."
