SEVEN people, all from Dublin, are due to appear shortly before Naas Court.

They were arrested in the Clane area following an attempt to take cars in Hillview and Central Park early today.

Gardai are also investigating an attempt to break into a house at Brooklawns, Clane.

There was a lot of garda activity in the general area and the Garda Air Support was also at the scene.

Separately Naas gardai are investigating the theft of 14 kegs of beer from behind McCormack’s public house at South Main Street. The incident occurred at 7.30am on May 9.

The gardai believe the kegs were driven away in a white coloured Mercedes Sprinter van. Gardai believe the Mercedes van was driven behind the delivery vehicle and the kegs were taken from the back yard within 3 minutes of the delivery lorry leaving.
