Criminals Target Copper In South Tipperary

On November 11th, 2017, Thurles.Info warned our Tipperary public of criminals targeting copper for resale as scrap to, shall we just say, ambiguous agents dealing in metal.

Gardaí are now appealing for witnesses to certain criminal activity which is understood to have taken place over a 3 day period, on November 16th, 17th and 18th last.

This criminal goings-on occurred close to an area known as Killistafford Cross, Dualla Village near Cashel, Co. Tipperary and involved the theft of metres of telephone cable cut down and removed for its copper value, to be sold on to scrap metal merchants.

It is understood that the thieves involved were dressed to appear as telephone contractors.

Gardaí in Cashel are appealing for anyone who was in this area on the dates in question, to contact them at Tel: (062) 75840 or on the Garda Confidential Line Tel: 1800 666 111.

    I have been saying this for months, these criminals are disguising themselves as Roads Workers or P&T or ESB Workers. Please take Reg Numbers of Vans. Please help our Gardaí on the ground and stop these Tugs before we are targeted next.
