Gang steal trailer and haul of goods in planned heist at Kilkenny city property
By COLIN BARTLEY
THIEVES went off-road to gain access to a property on the outskirts of Kilkenny city before making off with a large haul of stolen equipment.
In what appears to have been a well-planned heist, the thieves stole a trailer, two power washers, a hedge trimmer, and a control box, as well as a quantity of diesel from a yard in the Maddockstown area.
The robbery took place between 4.30pm last Saturday and 8am on Monday morning.
A local Garda spokesperson said the culprit would have had to cross a field to gain entry to the yard.
Anyone with information about the theft is urged to contact Kilkenny Garda Station on 056 777 5000.
