Two men have been arrested in connection with an alleged ATM skimming operation.
The arrests in Blanchardstown this morning are described as a 'significant development' in this case.
Skimming devices and credit cards were recovered at the scene of the arrests.
The two men - aged in their 30s - are being held at Newbridge and Kildare Garda Stations and can be held for up to 24 hours.
It comes after a skimming device was used on a bank ATM in Kildare town yesterday.
Officers from Kildare and the National Economic Crime Bureau had been working closely with a financial institution to try to intercept the criminals involved, after eight different bank branches were targeted in Dublin, Kildare and Meath.
Gardaí believe those behind the skimming operation are part on an Eastern European criminal gang targeting ATMs here.
Gardaí are advising consumers to be vigilant when using ATMs - noting to "pay particular attention to suspicious activity or unusual items in the vicinity".
