GARDAÍ are asking members of the public to make sure all windows and doors in their home or business are secured, and be wary of keeping large amounts of money in either location, during the fine spell of weather after a local pub was broken into last weekend.
Burglars made off with two tills from Flynn’s pub in Lackagh containing substantial sums of money in the early hours of Sunday morning, July 16.
The incident is reported to have taken place some time between 2am and 3.30am. Any relevant information on the theft can be supplied to Mill Street Garda Station in Galway city on 091 538028, where Garda David Foley in the Crime Unit is conducting the investigation.
Another burglary occurred near Milltown last Saturday morning. A rear window of a house in Killmacnella, Irishtown, which is in Mayo but is not far from Milltown, was rorced open between 10.30am and 1.30pm.
Again, the thieves took a considerable sum of money. Anyone who took note of suspicious activity in the area on July 15, can get in touch with Gardai in Milltown at 093 51312.
