A BRITISH tourist was reunited with her stolen mobile phone last week as Gardai returned iy to her just before she boarded her flight.
The tourist rang the phone after it and other property was stolen, only to be greeted by a man who demanded money in exchange for the phone’s return.
After agreeing to meet, the tourist reported the incident to Gardai at Pearse Street, who met the thief and his friend at the scheduled time. Both were arrested in connection to the incident.
Gardai then went to Dublin Airport to return the phone just before the flight.
A man in his 30s has appeared before Dublin District Court. Gardai could not provide further details on the incident as “this matter is now before the courts”.
