FOUR men have been arrested in the Mayobridge area following the discovery of stolen property from the Republic of Ireland. 

On Friday, October 5, police commenced a search of premises in the Mayobridge area for suspected stolen property. 

The search ended yesterday (Monday) and four men, aged 59, 51, 40 and 37, were arrested at the scene of the search on suspicion of handling property believed to have been stolen in the Republic of Ireland.
