Gardaí are appealing for information after a quad bike worth €7,000 was stolen from a house in Mountrath.
The burglary took place overnight between April 6 and April 7, at Kilbricken, Mountrath.
The bike, a red Suzuki KingQuad valued €7,000, was located in a garage on the property.

Also overnight between April 6 and April 7, a van was stolen in Ballylinan.
