Gardai have now launched a major operation against the marauding foreign gangs, mainly consisting of young smartly dressed men and women from Romania and Bulgaria.
Last Friday night, one criminal – who had just flown into Dublin – was found with nine stolen iPhones as he left a prominent city centre nightclub.
The suspect in his 20s – a Romanian national – was arrested as he walked on Wexford Street by officers just seconds after he had left the nightclub last weekend.

Will the Gards get a handle on this?

Isn't it unreal that people are just flying over to steal your phone?

Do you know anyone who has had their phone stolen recently?

Does anyone have any tips on Mobile Phone Security?

Gangs of Romanians flying to Dublin to steal iPhones-thanks EU!

There's an app you can get which allows the device to be traced by satellite if it's stolen. I don't know the particulars but a friend had a visit from the guards a while back who believed a stolen iPad was in his house-the app showed it as being there. They were fairly insistant that he had it and offered him a chance to give it up freely. The thing is accurate to a few metres and it turned out the iPad was next door to him.

These shops offering second hand phones, "All models unlocked", does anyone check to see where they get there phones from?

I see it as an opportunity for Irish criminals. They could do the robbing and then the Romanians would only need to send over a few collectors.

40% of Romanian population in Britain in the last five years have been arrested for serious offences.
Romanian crime a

That figure does not consist of petty crime, begging and stealing from shops.

Small time mentality. Let the gypos rob the phones then rob the gypos at the airport.

Don't worry....they're flying into 'Dublin' based on what Apple maps tells them..

...they're actually in Knock

*this post also works if you substitute 'Apple Maps' with 'Ryan Air'

Class thread! I'm disappointed with our own indigenous criminals, it seems they are all victims of the whole Celtic pussy years and think snatching phones is beneath them, they all want the big coke deals and so on......is it any wonder there is so many foreigners filling the gap?

Come on lads, how many of you are getting shot for your Tony Montana delusions?

Irish crime for Irish criminals NOW!
