A short time later, the three men fled the scene on-foot empty-handed.

In a follow up operation, gardai searched a flat a short distance from the scene of the incident.

The three men were arrested.

They are currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Kevin St. and Pearse St. Garda Stations.
