Appeal launched after tractor stolen in Laois overnight

The Massey Ferguson tractor that was stolen from the Doyle family farm near Mountmellick on January 12

Gardaí are appealing for information after a tractor was stolen near The Rock last night.

The tractor, registration 12 LS 1137, was stolen during the night in the Mountmellick area.

It is bright red Massey Ferguson 6480 – a huge machine.

Also stolen in the robbery with it was a red Broughan grain trailer with a rollover cover.

If you see either or both, or if someone suspiciously has a new Massey, will you please contact your local Gardai.

Likewise if you saw a tractor and trailer on the road at an unusual time last night/early this morning.

This news comes just days after a botched robbery of a house.

The raiders were disturbed by a homeowner as they attempted to force their way into a house around 7pm on Thursday.

That incident took place in Ballyadams.
