Gardaí attached to the Laois, Offaly, Kildare Division say they used social media as a tool to track down a massive haul of stolen goods recently.
Gardaí say that the seizure was the result of monitoring online activity and buy and sell groups and subsequent reports. Tullamore gardaí carried out a search over this week resulting in the recovery of over €3,000 of property stolen from business owners.
The items recovered include cosmetics and clothing from a variety of retailers.
A person has now been charged with a number of offences.
