Retailers affected by series of robberies in Limerick area
26 April 2022 | 0
The Convenience Stores and Newsagents Association (CSNA) reports that numerous members have informed the association of a series of robberies in the Limerick area.
In one instance, the individuals involved were able to rapidly bypass the key opening/closing pad for shutters. They then broke the glass in the sliding entrance doors to gain entry to the store. Once inside, they proceeded to the cigarette gantry where they stole numerous products and also stole the contents from the tobacco drawers below.
The CSNA reports the robberies took place in these Limerick stores over the space of a couple of weeks with the thieves entering and leaving one of the stores within three minutes. All the reported break ins were at night-time and not during opening hours.
The association is encouraging all members to review their current security measures and procedures to avoid being targetted by the same gang.
