Gardai in Listowel are appealing for help to capture a gang caught red handed during an attempted burglary.
Gardai confronted the group today after an attempted burglary was foiled at a house and a chase ensued on foot.
After the attempt to burgle the house was stopped by gardai, the gang made their escape at high speed in a distinctive black Audi A3 estate with tinted black windows which was waiting on the John B Keane road in Listowel.
Garda Inspector Pat O’Connell says they’re satisfied at least five people are involved.
It’s also believed the same gang were responsible for a burglary in the Caherdown area of the town some time between 11 and 11.30am today.
Anyone with information or who spots a car matching this description is asked to phone Listowel Gardai at 068-21000 or any garda station.
