Tipperary businesses warned by Gardai to watch out for shoplifters at Christmas

GARDAÍ have warned business owners in Tipperary to be vigilant as shoplifters have been active in the Nenagh Garda Division area in the run-up to the busy Christmas shopping period.

Over the past week, Nenagh Gardaí arrested a total of four people on suspicion of shoplifting from local stores.

Meanwhile, a house at Ard Cruidín in Tyone, Nenagh, was burgled last Saturday. A van was also stolen from outside the premises, but was later recovered. Gardaí are appealing to the public any information on the incident.

There were a number of drug seizures over the past week, including a substantial haul of cocaine after a vehicle was stopped and searched at Coolderry, Birdhill, on Thursday evening of last week.

In another drug related incident, a youth was arrested in Ballycommon last Friday for possession of cannabis herb with an estimated street value of €300.

Seven people were arrested for public order in the district within the past week, five in Roscrea and two in Nenagh. A male motorist was arrested on suspicion of drink driving at Parkmore Roscrea in recent days.
