GARDAI APPEAL TO BUSINESS OWNERS TO LOCK VALUABLES IN SAFE FOLLOWING RAID

first_imgOne of Donegal’s leading Gardai has warned business owners including jewellers that they may need to lock valuables in safes.Supt Vincent O’Brien made the warning after a raid on McCullagh’s Jewellery store in the Letterkenny Shopping Centre.Thieves got in through the roof of an adjoining shop and then broke their way through a partition in the jewellery shop. Once inside the gang drilled holes into display cabinets and escaped with several thousand euro worth of necklaces and rings.Gardai are not ruling out the possibility that the raid is linked to another break-in to the Cameo Jewellery shop in Donegal Town eight weeks ago.Supt O’Brien said “Most likely there was a market for this and it could be on its way out of this country altogether.“We are asking people who have valuables on the premises at night when they are locked up to leave them in a safe,” he said. He again appealed for witnesses to Monday morning’s heist in Letterkenny to come forward.Gardai are particularly anxious to speak to taxi-drivers in the area around 4am to contact them.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily GARDAI APPEAL TO BUSINESS OWNERS TO LOCK VALUABLES IN SAFE FOLLOWING RAID was last modified: April 4th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GardaiHEISTSupt Vincent O’Brienlast_img
