Gardaí at Glasson Garda Station are investigating an aggravated burglary which occurred at a Marina in Killinure Point, Glasson, Co Westmeath on Friday, the 4th October 2013 at 5.30pm.
The car used in the burglary was a dark coloured (navy) Ford Mondeo, with a 01DL7691 registration number. It was a 4 door saloon with 2 alloy 5 spoke wheels on the front and 2 steel black wheels without hubcaps on the back.
