Two men were arrested last week in connection with a spate of house burglaries in the Clonmel in recent weeks after gardai discovered a haul of stolen electrical goods and computers in searches conducted on the homes of the two suspects.

Computer consoles, laptops, televisions and other household electrical goods stolen from homes around the town were all recovered in the searches carried out on two houses in Clonmel.

The two Clonmel men, who are aged around 30 years, were arrested following the searches by investigating gardai on Monday and Tuesday, September 19 and 20 and questioned in connection with the burglaries.

A file on the case is now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions and gardai have re-issued an appeal for information from any witnesses to the burglaries.

They have also warned householders to continue to be vigilant about security in their homes.

The recent spree of burglaries occurred all over Clonmel from the Old Bridge to the residential estates along the Fethard and Cashel Road.

All the homes were broken into at night while the occupants were asleep with the burglars taking advantage of lapses in security such as open windows to gain entry.

“We are urging householders to make sure their premises are secure and if they don’t have a burglar alarm to make sure they have all their windows and doors locked before going to bed.”

Anyone with information that could help gardai investigating the burglaries should contact Clonmel Garda Station at (052) 6122222.
