The criminals who broke into a house in Limerick City got away with a slew of Christmas gifts, as well as a large amount of jewelry and cash.
Ardai, which is investigating the burglary at the property, Castletroy, said the burglary took place between 1pm and 5.30pm on Monday January 10, when the occupants were away.
“The criminals broke in through the back patio window and left with a large amount of jewelry and cash, some of which were Christmas gifts,” said Divisional Crime Prevention Officer Sergeant Ber Leetch, to the leader of Limerick.
Gardai advise that all doors and windows are locked and the alarm is activated should the property be left unoccupied.
“Criminals can still come in, but we have to do everything we can to protect our homes and an alarm is a good deterrent for criminals,” Sergeant Ber Leetch added.
“I leave my house as secure as possible, but I also make sure that if someone breaks in, they won’t stay long because the house alarm will ring and the criminals don’t want to be caught,” she added.
“Ideally don’t have cash in your home, but if you must, be smart about where you hide it and your precious jewelry, but never in the master bedroom because that’s where the criminals search most thoroughly.”
Gardai have confirmed they are investigating a burglary which occurred at a property in Castletroy on Monday January 10.
“A sum of money and property was taken during the incident,” Gardai said. “No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.”
