Gardaí have arrested two men as part of an investigation into bogus tradesmen in Clondalkin.

The men, both aged in their 20s, were arrested yesterday (Tuesday) and were detained at Clondalkin Garda station.

Gardaí received reports that a man, aged in his 80s, was contacted by two men informing him that he needed substantial work to be carried out on his property. The man handed over a substantial sum of cash to complete the work, however this work was never undertaken.

Gardaí carried out an investigation and arrested two men as a result. Both men have since been charged and were due to appear before this morning’s sitting of Blanchardstown District Court.
