Thieves take mower, mixer and strimmer

Gardai in Oranmore are investigating a theft last month in which a range of machinery was stolen from a property in the Clarinbridge area.

The thieves stole a ride-on mower, a garden strimmer and a cement mixer sometime between Wednesday Feb 15 and Monday Feb 20.

The lawnmower is orange in colour and is in good clean condition. It would have needed a trailer to move it.

Gardai in the village have asked that anyone with any information on the incident or who may have seen any suspicious activity on those dates, to contact Garda Maria Roughneen at Oranmore Garda Station at 091388030
