Gardaí at Abbeyleix are appealing to the public for their assistance with regard to a number of thefts of Eir cable over the past two weeks.
The incidents have occurred on each of the last two consecutive Thursdays in adjoining townslands.
The first occurred at Hollymount on night of June 6/7 where approximately 750 metres of cable was stolen.
The second occurred at Ballyharmon on June 13/14 when approximately 600 metres of cable was taken.
“Did you see any suspicious activity in those locations, or anyone transporting such cable,” is the appeal from a Garda spokesperson.
“We would also ask the public to be vigilant and report any activity they believe to be unusual about Telecoms poles etc to their local Garda Station.”
If you have any information on this you can contact Abbeyleix Garda Station on 057 873050 or Portlaoise Garda Station on 057 8674100.
