Owners of stolen tools sought by Gardaí

Gardaí are anxious to find the owners of a stash of expensive stolen tools found recently in south Laois, as part of their investigation into a rural crime gang.

Three quadbikes, several lawnmowers, countless extension reels, strimmers, consaws, drills, chainsaws and socket sets are among the many items, found recently in the Cullahill area.

A folder of the tools was on display at a Property Recovered Day in Portlaoise Garda Station last Thursday September 22.

A man from south Laois was charged with possession of stolen property recently.

The items can be viewed in person by contacting Garda Mark Russell in Abbeyleix garda station.

Unclaimed items are expected to be put up for public auction in the new year.
