TWO MEN have been ar­rested by Bray Gar­dai fol­low­ing a se­ries of shoot­ings in the town.

The men, both in their 20s, were re­leased without charge on Mon­day night af­ter sev­eral hours of ques­tion­ing. Gar­dai said a file is be­ing drawn-up and will be sent to the DPP.

The ar­rests fol­low three shoot­ing in­ci­dents in Bray in less than three months, be­lieved to be linked to the ac­tiv­i­ties of lo­cal drugs gangs. Gar­dai are test­ing car­tidge cases from the scenes of the in­ci­dents to de­ter­mine whether the same weapon was used in the shoot­ings and whether there is a con­nec­tion with a no­to­ri­ous crim­i­nal op­er­at­ing in town. Cllr. John Brady re­ferred to the ar­rests as a ‘big break­through,’ but warned that he feared there could be more vi­o­lence.

‘I am wor­ried that it is only a mat­ter of time be­fore Gar­daí are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a mur­der,’ he said.
