Gardaí seek public’s help following burglaries in Clarecastle and Sixmilebridge

GARDAÍ in Clare are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the occupants of a car suspected of being used in two burglaries in different parts of the county. A dark blue Audi A3 hatchback was spotted at the scene of the incidents in Clarecastle and Sixmilebridge.
On Friday, January 8 at approximately 8.10pm a car reversed into the driveway of a house in the Hillview Estate, Clarecastle. Two males ran to the rear of the house and broke into the house through the patio door. They were disturbed by the teenage son in the house and left empty handed. This car then went in the direction of Sixmilebridge and at 8.20pm four males wearing gloves and balaclavas smashed in the front door of a house in the Woodview Heights estate. All the rooms were ransacked and a safe containing a substantial amount of money and an Apple IPhone 12 was stolen.
Crime Prevention Officer Sergeant Triona Brooks is urging anybody who may be able to assist this investigation to contact gardaí. “This was a very traumatic experience for the young boy in his home in Clarecastle. The car used in both these burglaries is a dark blue Audi A3 hatchback. We are asking if anyone has any information about these burglaries or anyone who was in the Hillview Estate, Clarecastle and Woodview Heights, Sixmilebridge between 7.30pm and 8.30pm last Friday evening and saw this car or anyone who may have dash cam footage of the car to contact Ennis Garda Station on 065 6848100.”
