Kildare Gardaí warn of burglaries while going for 2km radius walk during Covid-19 restrictions

A burglary took place in Rathcoffey on Sunday last when the rear windows of a house were forced.

The property was entered and rooms were ransacked. 

Gardaí urged people to lock up up when going for their permitted within a 2km radius. 

Gardaí said: “Burglaries have reduced significantly but we still have a number of break-ins happening. 

“Just because we are in the middle of the Covid-19 health emergency, it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be vigilant in terms of home security.”

Gardaí also advised owners of vacant building sites to ensure that they are secured and no tools or other valuable items are lying around.  

The emergence and spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Ireland is challenging in many respects for all our citizens. Opportunist criminals may exploit the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) to take advantage of vulnerable people. Distraction burglaries, bogus callers, rogue traders, online and telephone frauds are just some of the crimes we should look out for.

An Garda Síochána are endeavouring to assist as many people as possible during this time. Many other groups, clubs and associations have volunteered their services too. These people are also assisting us in other ways, such as reporting suspicious activity in their locality. Crime prevention is everybody’s business after all!
