3,000EURO WORTH OF CLOTHES ROBBED IN MITCHELSTOWN
- Thieves return for a second go -
Gardai have arrested one man after raiders made off with a large quantity of clothes from the St Vincent de Paul clothes bank at the Ozanam Centre in Mitchelstown last weekend, writes Brian Moore.
“Over €3,000 worth of clothes was stolen from the clothes bank on Sunday night last. The raiders then returned again on Monday morning when, after a chase, one man was arrested. Another man is helping gardai with their enquires.
“I would call on anyone with information or if you have witnessed anything out of the ordinary at the Ozanam Centre to contact the Mitchelstown gardai on 025 84833,” a garda spokesperson told The Avondhu.
In another incident vandals overturned one of the stone seats at the sundial in the Square in Mitchelstown.
“The stone seat was moved and left on its side. This incident seems to have taken place sometime on Sunday night or early Monday morning,” a garda spokesperson said.
Cork County Council official have confirmed to The Avondhu that the stone seat will be in place before the Festival of the Galtees gets underway this weekend.
Bill Power of the Mitchelstown Heritage Society was shocked when he heard of the incident in the square, “This stone is well over 1,000 kilos and the vandals must have had trouble moving it. I hope that the council will replace the stone urgently and anyone who witnessed this incident will contact the gardai,” Bill Power said.
Information should be submitted to the gardai at Mitchelstown.
