Gardai are investigating a house burglary in the Ardfinnan area and attempted house break-in in the Araglen area last Thursday.

Electronic goods and cash were stolen from the house at Old Grange, Ardfinnan that was burgled during the day on September 3 while the owner was away. The burglars gained entry to the premises via the back door.

Meanwhile, gardai investigating an attempted break-in to a house in the Araglen area the same day are appealing to anyone who saw a black Volkswagen Golf car in the area last Thursday to contact Cahir Garda Station.

A Cahir Garda Station spokesman said the occupant of the house returned home to find a window broken and the alarm wires cut but the house hadn’t been entered. He confirmed there was a possibility that the two crimes were carried out by the same people.

Anyone who saw suspicious activity in the Ardfinnan and Araglen areas last Thursday should contact Cahir Garda Station at (052) 7445630.
