A highly-organised gang has been carrying out burglaries in Rialto and Inchicore over the last two months.

It is understood that homes were targeted in what was a "fairly organised" manner.

Homes of elderly people were targeted.

Aside from burglaries, bike crime has become a significant issue in Dublin 8 since Christmas.
