Ill wind leads to rise in chainsaw thefts in Tipperary

Gardai are warning people to mind their chainsaws following the need to cut trees felled in the recent storms. Three chainsaws were taken from a garden shed at Knigh, Nenagh, between February 19 and 22, and a fourth was stolen from a shed in Yewston, Nenagh, on February 21/22.

Gardai are once again warning motorists to be on the watch for thieves stealing catalytic converters from parked cars, following two more incidents in Nenagh last week.

A converter was removed from a car at Nenagh railway station on February 21 after the owner had parked there for the day, while, on the same day, another converter was taken from a car in the car park of Nenagh Civic Offices on Limerick Road.

This brings to four the number of converters stolen in the past six weeks. The converters contain precious metals and may fetch up to e1,000 as scrap.
