Pictures: Gardaí on random patrol find van and trailer full of stolen tools
Do you know anybody who has had tools stolen recently?
Gardaí on routine patrol stopped van and trailer full of assorted tools at Irishtown Mountmellick at 5am last Saturday November 4.
Gardai said some items have already been identified as being stolen in Leixlip in September.
They are encouraging members of the public to alert anyone they may know, especially builders, who have had tools stolen recently to the discovery.
Even if you do not see your property Gardai have said it would be worth your while making an appointment and having a look at all the items in person.
Any person who thinks they recognise anything from pictures to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Gardai envisage having an open day in due course.
In May, Gardaí recovered more than €50,000 worth of stolen tools and equipment which was destined be sold on the black market here.
The stolen industrial power tools and gardening machinery were stolen in the UK before being brought here to sell.
