Bungling burglars break into empty house in centre of Kilkenny town
Hapless would-be thieves broke into a vacant house in the centre of a county Kilkenny town before fleeing empty handed.
The incident occurred at a house on Chatsworth Street, Castlecomer sometime between Thursday, January 21 and Thursday, January 28.
A local Garda source confirmed the burglars gained entry by forcing open a window at the front of the house.
Despite getting inside the propery and rummaging around, the burglars left without taking anything from the property.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Castlecomer Garda Station on 056 444 0650.
