Four men appeared before Cavan District Court yesterday after being found with housebreaking tools in the Belturbet area on the 13th of July.
A member of the public observed the four occupants of a car acting suspiciously around an unoccupied house and reported it to Gardai.
The men were subsequently arrested in the near vicinity and a search was conducted. Items used for housebreaking were located in the car and the men were charged with various offenses.
Gardai have thanked the observant member of the public on social media, and have encouraged anyone who sees similar activity to report it to their local Garda station immediately.
