Gardaí hunt gang of three after two Offaly burglaries
Gardaí are investigating two overnight burglaries in Offaly, less than a week after a taskforce was set up to tackle the issue of rural crime in the wake of the attack on Richie McKelvey.
The two burglaries happened in the same vicinity of that attack, a matter of miles and hours apart.
The first occurred at a house at Fortal, Birr on Tuesday. A group of three men were seen getting into a black seven-seater/estate type vehicle at around 2pm on Tuesday afternoon.
The second incident occurred not far from Fortal at Sharavogue between 9am and 5pm on Tuesday.
Nothing was taken in either incident but gardaí are appealing for witnesses to come forward to them at Birr Garda Station on (057) 916 9710.
