Aggravated Burglary at Carrick on Suir

Gardaí in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary are investigating an aggravated burglary that occurred at the house of a firearms dealer in Carrick on Suir, Co. Tipperary between 1am and 3am on the 9th January 2009.

The victim and his partner were accosted by a gang comprising four men after they had arrived home following a night's socialising. The raiders were armed with a sawn-off shotgun and a knife. They were aggressive and violent, cutting the victim’s face with the knife. Both of the victims were tied up with computer cord and duct tape, as was their daughter who had been watching TV at the time.

The gang then demanded the alarm code and keys to the strong room. They then stole 30 firearms including shotguns, rifles, and handguns.


The gang then loaded the firearms into the boot of the victim’s car, a beige Honda Civic, reg no 03 WX 5048 and made good their escape. The car was subsequently found burned out at Tillary Road, Ballyryan, Monard, near the Tipperary/Limerick border.
