NORTH CORK HIT BY SPATE OF BURGLARIES
Gardai in Fermoy believe locating the whereabouts of a silver estate car could lead them to the perpetrators of 5 burglaries that took place in north Cork on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend.
A house in the Deerpark area of Castlelyons was entered on Saturday last, June 4 between 2.30pm and 5.30pm. The rear window was forced open and the house was ransacked but nothing was taken. A neighbour reported hearing a car at 3pm and a male wearing a blue shirt and light coloured trousers was seen in the vicinity.
On the same day, Saturday June 4, between 8am and 7pm the rear window of a house was forced in Mogeela, Conna. Nothing was taken from the house.
Similarly between the hours of 12.30pm and 18.50pm entry was gained through the side window of a dwelling in Monanimy, Killavullen, where a substantial amount of cash was taken.
The rear window of a house in Gurteen, Ballynoe was smashed and a small sum of cash was taken between the hours of 4.30pm and 9.10pm that evening. On the same day a man in Castletownroche disturbed 3 males in their 20s near the scene of his house.
They fled the scene in a silver estate car, reg ‘02 C’, although it is thought that the plate could have been false. This same car was seen acting suspiciously in Fermoy on Sunday June 5 and in Midleton on Tuesday, June 7.
Gardai are appealing to the public to come forward and contact Fermoy gardai on 025-82100 if they have seen this car.
