Two men have been arrested in Monaghan as part of a garda investigation into a mini bus that was stolen from Dublin Airport in the early hours this morning, and the suspected false imprisonment of three passengers aboard the bus.
Shortly after 1am this morning, the alarm was raised that a mini bus had been taken during an incident at Dublin Airport.
It’s understood that three passengers were in the mini bus when two men boarded the bus and drove in the direction of the M1.
The mini bus is then understood to have continued north on the M1 where it was located near Drogheda and followed by garda units before crossing the border north of Dundalk.
After being caught by Gardai, the two men, both in their 30s, were arrested and are currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act at Carrickmacross Garda Station.
