Land Cruiser and trailer stolen in farmyard raid

An appeal for information has been launched after a new Toyota Land Cruiser was stolen from a farmyard in Co. Cork over the weekend.

Taken from a farmyard near Killeagh, in east Cork, the 4×4 is a long wheelbase Land Cruiser with a bull bar on the front and a registration bearing: 182-C-670.

The jeep was stolen at approximately 11:15am on Saturday morning, August 18.

A trailer was also taken in the raid. The trailer is a purpose-built 21ft by 7.6ft Graham Edwards flatbed trailer, larger than standard-built equivalents. There is also a storage box in place, beside the hitch.

The stolen vehicle was recorded going through a toll on the M1 motorway in Drogheda, Co. Louth, on Saturday according to its owners.

The jeep was also recorded on a camera in Northern Ireland at around 6.30pm on Saturday evening.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Youghal Garda station, Co. Cork, on: 024-92200; or Crimestoppers Freefone on: 1800-250-025.
