The men were arrested and charged with theft of over €2,000 worth of stock from stores in Athlone and Tullamore.
The items recovered included a large amount of the popular LOL Surprise children's merchandise.
Gardai said the arrests were a "great example of gardai and businesses working together."
The men are now due in court to face the charges.
