Two men have been arrested after the theft of a car in Navan.

The vehicle was stolen yesterday evening before Gardaí attached to the Roads Policing Unit in Blanchardstown later spotted it at a garage in the Mulhuddart area.

The two men in the vehicle were searched. One of the men was found to be in possession of a knife while the driver was tested and found to be positive for cocaine.

The men were arrested and taken to Blanchardstown Garda Station for questioning.

The two men have since been charged and are scheduled to appear before Blanchardstown District Court on January 5th next.
