Spate of break-ins on main street

FIVE businesses on the main street of Killarney were targeted by thieves under darkness in the early hours of yesterday.

A Killarney police spokesman said those premises hit included the Killarney Newsagency, where unknown offenders kicked in a section of fibro wall to gain entry, making off with the entire stock of cigarettes.

Access to the Killarney Hotel was gained through a window, with a quantity of cash and alcohol stolen, but break-ins at Killarney Real Estate, the Killarney Butchery and a vacant premises yielded nothing.

Police spent yesterday interviewing business operators and gathering evidence.

"We had Scenes of Crime officers doing fingerprinting and DNA collection, as well as taking photographic evidence," the Killarney police spokesman said.

"At this stage we have no suspects, but the investigation will continue over the weekend and obviously will be advanced if someone from the public comes forward with information.

"It doesn't matter how insignificant this might seem."

If you know or saw something which could help police with their investigation call the Killarney station on 4664 3120 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
