Gardaí have confirmed that an investigation is “ongoing” into the theft of a trailer and quad from a house in Tipperary yesterday (Wednesday, November 24).

The items went missing at the yard in Cahir around 10:00a.m yesterday.

The equipment has not yet been recovered and gardaí have confirmed that no arrests have been made, as the investigation into the theft continues.

The owner of the Nugent trailer and Yamaha quad took to social media last evening (November 24) in an appeal for information about the theft of the valuable equipment.

The agri-contractor said:

“Hi folks, my Nugent 8×4 trailer & Yamaha Kodiak 450 quad were stolen out of my yard earlier today.

“If anyone comes across them anywhere in the country please get in touch. I have serial numbers for both. Any information would be greatly appreciated,” he added.

Anyone with any information about the trailer or quad, or who may have been offered either for sale is asked to contact gardaí.
