Early this morning, two men were arrested after they crashed a car which they had stolen from a house in Arklow.
At around 6.30am this morning, two men broke into a house in Arklow and took two sets of car keys. They took one car initially but after driving a short distance, returned on foot to take the second vehicle.
The two men even drove at the owner as she attempted to stop them taking the car. Luckily she was not hurt.
The two men -who are known to Gardai- were arrested a short time later after they crashed the car at Tinnock in North of Gorey. A house close to where they were caught had the windows smashed, which could be related.
