Gardai recover items stolen in farm theft nearly 200km away

It is reported that a cattle trailer and quad has been recovered by members of An Garda Siochana close to 200km away from where the items were originally stolen from.

The theft of the cattle trailer and quad from a farm in the Slane region of Co. Meath was reported to Gardai on Monday, October 23. The items were believed to have been taken overnight.

However, following a search of a house and sheds in the Killenaule area of Co. Tipperary (just outside Thurles) on Tuesday, October 24, local reports suggest that both the trailer and quad have been recovered.

Gardai added that the search took place at around 6:00pm on Tuesday. But it hasn’t been officially confirmed whether both items were recovered together.

Two men have allegedly been arrested and charged in connection with the reported theft of the property, according to The Nationalist. It is understood that they have already appeared before a district court in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, the local publication added.

Reward for stolen machinery

Around the same time last month as the theft mentioned above, a farmer in the midlands offered a reward for information leading to the recovery of machinery worth thousands of euros that had been stolen.

During the raid of the farm in Camross, Co. Laois, an Ifor Williams 120 livestock trailer – with sheep decks – and a red 2007 Suzuki KingQuad ATV was stolen, as well as a set of bolt-cutters.

It is understood the items were stolen sometime between 6:30pm and 10:00pm on Tuesday night, October 17. The victim believed the farm may have been scoped out by thieves prior to the robbery.
