Four men are due in court in Castlebar in Co.Mayo later.

The four were arrested as part of Operation Thor, a Garda initiative tackling burglaries nationwide.

The four men in their 20's were arrested alongside a teenage boy aged 15 at a property in Ballinrobe on Friday night.

They have been charged in connection with a burglary at Claremorris also on Friday night.

Gardai also found a number of items understood to be linked to recent burglary incidents and they seized a high-powered car and a van.

They are appealing for information, especially anyone who may have seen a black hatchback type car or noticed any suspicious activity in the south Mayo area.

The four are due to appear before a special sitting of Castlebar District Court later today.
