Two people arrested as part of operations targeting criminal groups involved in burglary and related crime in south Kilkenny are to appear in court on Saturday.

The two men and one woman were arrested following a burglary in Mooncoin in the early hours of Friday morning.

 Garda units from Mooncoin and Thomastown responded to an intruder alarm activation at around 1.40am at a supermarket on Main Street in Mooncoin.

 The woman, aged in her 20s, and a man in his 30s were arrested near the scene a short time later.

They were detained at Thomastown and Kilkenny garda stations.

Property taken during the burglary - including a sum of cash - was recovered and a car involved in the incident was also seized.

They are set to appear before a special sitting of Waterford District Court on Saturday in connection with the incident.

A male in his late teens who was also arrested was released without charge.
