Gardaí investigate theft of trailer from owner’s yard

Members of An Garda Síochána have issued an appeal for information following the theft of a trailer from a yard in Co. Meath last week.

In a statement on social media, local Gardaí said:

“Navan Gardai are investigating the theft of a trailer which was taken from the owner’s yard in Castlemartin, Navan, Meath, on Thursday, September 18, between 9:00am and 6:00pm.”

Describing it as a Tuff Mac trailer, with a photograph of a similar implement, the statement added: “If you can help in any way please contact Navan Garda Station on: 046-9021445.”

The implement is the latest in a series of trailers to be stolen from the Co. Meath area in recent months, following the theft of a 12ft X 5ft 10in Ifor Williams livestock trailer and a 12ft X 5ft flatbed trailer, also taken from a yard back in July.

Meanwhile, Gardaí in Co. Monaghan are investigating the latest in a spate of diesel thefts in the county.

Local Gardaí noted that between 10:00pm on Tuesday, September 17, and 5:00am on Wednesday, a large quantity of diesel was removed from a lorry parked in a yard at Drumbenagh, Tydavnet, Co. Monaghan.

This is the third reported incident of this nature this month in the Monaghan area.
