Thieves target meat to sell on


THIEVES operating in Walkinstown have been targeting large consignments of meat recently.

It is believed that there are two strands of theft of meat ongoing in the area.

"There have been reports of some people stealing meat as they are hungry and in need," said a source.

"But another trend has begun which has been more organised, where what appears to be a gang are stealing quite a lot of meat and selling it on."
