Nenagh gardai suspect five burglaries may be linked

Nenagh Gardai are working on the theory that five burglaries in the area on the same day may be the work of the same gang.

The five burglaries at Middlewalk, Cloughjordan; Moneygall, Moanahincha, Roscrea; Coolagh, Ballinclough; Ballygibbon, Nenagh, all happened within hours of each other on the morning of Thursday, April 10.

In each case, doors or windows were forced and bedrooms ransacked. The culprits took a quantity of jewellery and cash from each house. In two of the cases, they removed the alarm system from the wall before entering the houses.

The gardai are looking for information on a silver car that was spotted at the scene of the burglary in Moneygall by a motorist on the M7 who alerted the owner of the house.

Meanwhile, three cars were broken into on Wednesday, April 9, while a funeral was taking place at Lisbonny cemetery at around 1.30pm. Handbags were taken from the parked cars and a man is helping the gardai with their enquiries.

Two men are also helping the gardai with ther enquiries into a breakin-in at Supermacs in Nenagh on Monday, April 14, at around 2am. The culprits forced their way in through the front door but were caught on CCTV.

The Tasty Bites restaurant in Rosemary Squre, Roscrea, was broken into on Friday, April 11, and cash taken from the till, along with money from a gaming machine.

And the gardai are warning people to be careful of their oil tanks after 300 litres of oil was removed from the tank at the rear of Roscrea Community Hall on April 9, and diesel was taken from the tank at Liffey Mills in Roscrea on the same night.

Nenagh gardai are also investigating the theft of a car trailer from outside a house in Borrisokane on April 11. The incident happened during the day.

And in a suspected rustling case, a calf has been reported missing from a field at Four Roads, Ballina. The injured party went to count his calves on April 9 to discover one missing. The calf was newly-born and was not wearing an ear tag.
