Gardaí are seeking the public’s assistance after a spate of burglaries in the town in the past week.
In the early hours of Monday morning, intruders broke into the Athlone Regional Sports Centre. They broke a window at the front of the building to get in, before making their getaway with a TV. They also caused some damage to a vending machine on the premises.
On Monday night, the Boat Club on Grace Road was broken into and a boat engine stolen.
There have also been two thefts from private motor vehicles parked in driveways in the Monksland area recently. Gardaí are advising residents to ensure their cars are secured, and that valuables are not left on display.
Anyone with information on any of the above is asked to contact Athlone Gardaí on (090 ) 6492600.
