Stolen trailers

Meanwhile, also in Co. Meath, a farmer has appealed for information following the theft of two trailers from his yard over the weekend.

The implements are believed to have been taken at some point between Friday, July 12, and Monday, July 15.

A description has been provided of the stolen trailers.

One of the trailers is a 12ft X 5ft 10in Ifor Williams livestock trailer with sheep decks and dividing gate. It was highlighted that this trailer has some noticeable roof damage which would make it stand out.

In addition, the implement has the number 1-54415 cut into the chassis which would be difficult to hide, according to the owner.

The second trailer taken in the raid is a 12ft X 5ft flatbed trailer.

The implements were taken from a yard located on the N2 approximately 4km south of Slane village, at the end of a lane-way.

There was a locked gate on both the lane and the yard; both were broken open to gain access.

The two trailers were also locked using the manufacturer’s locking system.

Gardaí have confirmed that investigations into the theft are ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Navan Garda Station on: 046-9036100.
