Two men have been arrested in connection with an alleged ATM skimming operation.

The arrests in Blanchardstown this morning are described as a 'significant development' in this case.

Skimming devices and credit cards were recovered at the scene of the arrests.

The two men - aged in their 30s - are being held at Newbridge and Kildare Garda Stations and can be held for up to 24 hours.

It comes after a skimming device was used on a bank ATM in Kildare town yesterday.

Officers from Kildare and the National Economic Crime Bureau had been working closely with a financial institution to try to intercept the criminals involved, after eight different bank branches were targeted in Dublin, Kildare and Meath.

GardaĆ­ believe those behind the skimming operation are part on an Eastern European criminal gang targeting ATMs here.

GardaĆ­ are advising consumers to be vigilant when using ATMs - noting to "pay particular attention to suspicious activity or unusual items in the vicinity".
