Gardaí Make Arrest Following Spate Of Car Thefts

A man, understood to be aged in his 20s, was arrested last weekend, following a spate of burglaries in Thurles, Co Tipperary.

The man has been charged in relation to a total of seven incidents of burglary, theft from cars and trespassing, in the town of Thurles on May 8th last, and appeared before Thurles District Court, (sitting at Nenagh), yesterday morning.

The man was arrested after an apartment was searched by investigating Gardaí from the Thurles Detective Unit, resulting in the recovery of some of the suspected stolen property.

Previously, Gardaí had been notified of a burglary and three thefts from cars in the Mitchel Street and Sli-Na-Suire areas of Thurles Town, same which had taken place in the early hours of last Saturday morning.

The thefts are known to have included cash and mobile phones.

Gardai also confirm that unsuccessful attempts had also been made to forcefully enter three houses in the area.

Gardaí are asking the public to remove their valuables and ensure that all vehicles are locked and alarmed; adding that items like electronics, cash, credit cards, and jewellery items, left behind on display in cars are clear targets for marauding criminals.
