Gardaí arrested a man in Midleton last night after being found in possession of house-breaking implements in Midleton.
As part of an Operation Thor, Gardaí from the regular, detective and roads policing units in Midleton stopped a vehicle in the Castleredmond area at around 8.30pm.
Following a search of the vehicle, Gardaí discovered balaclavas, tools and a number house-breaking implements.
The man, in his late teens, was arrested at the scene and brought to Cobh Garda Station where he was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. He has since been released without charge and a file will be prepared for the DPP.
