Three men remain in custody today after stolen property was recovered in Co Laois.

Gardaí made the arrests last night during an intelligence-led search at a house in rural Co Laois near the Tipperary border and are in connection with an ongoing investigation into a robbery in Athlone last week.

They recovered a large amount of stolen property and picked up three men. Two are aged 27, while the third man is a 31-year-old.

The three are being questioned at Portlaoise, Tullamore and Athlone garda stations where they can be detained for up to seven days.
