‘Toiletry thieves’ fail to make a clean getaway thanks to Kilkenny gardai
A THIEVING couple with a penchant for tanning goods and toiletries were arrested by gardai after they were caught speeding down the M9 with a boot full of stolen items.
Local gardai and members of the Armed Support Unit stopped the couple after their vehicle was clocked speeding down the motorway at around 2.40pm last Thursday.
A quick search of the vehicle uncovered 19 bottles of tanning moose, a large quantity of deodorant and several other toiletry items.

The man was charged with theft and possessing stolen property. His female accomplice was charged with the possession of stolen property.
Both suspects were bailed to appear before Kilkenny District Court on June 18.
