Search continues for gang who tried to burgle house in Listowel

Gardai in Listowel are appealing again this morning for help to capture a gang caught red handed during an attempted burglary. Listowel Garda Station Gardai confronted the group yesterday 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 sportline with tinted black windows which was waiting on the John B Keane road in Listowel. The gardai believe at least five men in their 20s are involved and they are described as travelling criminals. 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 yesterday. Anyone with information or who spots a car matching this description is asked to phone Listowel Gardai at 068-21000 or any garda station.
