A man in his 50s was arrested by Gardaí earlier today, in connection with an ongoing investigation into the operations of accused bogus tradesmen.
An investigation was launched after a man in his 70s allegedly paid bogus tradespeople a sizeable sum of money for roofing repairs on a home in the south Dublin region.
The Criminal Justice Act of 2007's Section 50 was used to place the apprehended man in custody in a garda station in County Dublin.
He was subsequently freed from garda detention, and the Director of Public Prosecutions will now receive a file.
More updates will be provided while the investigation is still ongoing, the Garda said.
