A 32-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an alleged fraud offence on an Italian man.

Over €300,000 was involved in the alleged transaction from the Italian man based in Italy.

The 32-year-old was arrested as he attempted to withdraw the funds from a bank earlier yesterday.

He was taken to Store Street Garda station where he was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

The arrested man was released from Garda custody without charge late last night and a file is being prepared for the DPP.
