Gardaí are re-issuing their warning to tradespeople to secure their tools and vehicles following a spate of tool thefts in recent days.
Earlier we reported the theft of tools from a building site at Charleville in Tullamore on Sunday night, and now gardaí have informed us that a similar incident occurred in another area of the county on Monday night.
A number of expensive power tools were stolen from the back of a van in the Clonfanlough/Ferbane area on Monday night, October 23.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Tullamore Garda Station on 057 932 7600.
