This came after Gardaí received reports that a man, aged in his 80s, was contacted by two men informing him that he needed substantial work to be carried out on his property.

The man in his 80s handed over a substantial sum of cash to complete the work, but this work was never undertaken.

After a probe was launched, the men in their 20s were arrested on Tuesday and were detained at Clondalkin Garda station under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

Both have since been charged and are due to appear before Wednesday morning’s sitting of Blanchardstown District Court.
