Gardaí are preparing a file for the DPP after they arrested a teenager in possession of house-breaking implements in East Cork last night.
The man was arrested at a checkpoint, mounted near Midleton as part of an Operation Thor, at around 8.30pm.
Gardaí from the regular, detective and roads policing units in Midleton stopped a vehicle in the Castleredmond area and following a search of the vehicle, they discovered balaclavas, tools and a number of house-breaking implements.
The man 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.
