Two seperate inquiries are in operation this week in the aftermath of seperate machinery related thefts in Lanesboro.
The first occurred last Wednesday (June 20) sometime between 2am and 6am at Curraghrua, culminating in the theft of a 6ftx5ft trailer from a private house.
Three days later (June 23), an aluminium Hudson general purpose trailer was stolen from a yard belonging to Clarke’s Machinery.
Thieves managed to gain access to the yard shortly after 1:30am by cutting through a fence.
Gardai have begun to review CCTV footage from the scene and have appealed for witnesses to contact them at 043 3346741.
