Four arrested in organised crime investigation due before court

Officers in Wexford detained the men under Operation Thor

Four men are due before Gorey District Court after they were arrested in Wexford yesterday.

The four men - aged in their early 20s and 30s - were arrested as part of Operation Thor in Bunclody after they failed to stop their van for gardaí.

The van was abandoned a short distance away and the occupants fled on foot.

They were arrested shortly after and a number of items including a hammer and gloves were found hidden in the van.

A minor who was detained along with the men has since been released without charge. A file on him will be forwarded to the Juvenile Liaison Office.

The four men are due before Gorey District Court this morning.
