Break ins

Folks there was a disturbed burglary in the Links at approx 3:30am this morning. Side gate and shed were opened but were interrupted by dog and outside lights. Any incidents in any other estates last night? Please be vigilant.

Mostly opportunistic attempts in Somerton - side gates, sheds, open cars.

2nd scroat spotted going thru graveyard around 6.45am having hidden in gardens for 2 hours. Gardai were called. He was initially spotted sprinting across green.

There may be items stashed in bushes etc so keep an eye out as they were light handed when nicked/spotted.

Good Garda response along with residents out also.

Good work that, well done all!

Were the nocturnal visitors indigenous or opportunists from outside the neighbourhood?

Was it just back gardens or was there any house break ins ?
