Brothers avoid jail over stolen bicycles


Two Louth brothers caught trying to sell €20,000 worth of high-end stolen bicycles have avoided a jail sentence at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Constantin (34) and Paul Sava (30) were caught with the goods after gardaí launched a sting operation where they posed as bicycle wholesalers.

Judge Martin Nolan sentenced Constantin Sava to two years suspended and Paul Sava to five years suspended after noting both have clean criminal records and were not the ringleaders.

Last March Judge Nolan gave a suspended sentence to Raymond Kearney (40), Preston Park, Julianstown, Co Meath for the same offence.
