Aggravated Burglary at Carrignavar, Co Cork on the 27/3/13

The Gardaí at Glanmire are investigating an aggravated burglary that occurred on
Wednesday 27th March 2013 at 20.50pm approx.

Three armed raiders arrived at a family home in Carrignavar, County Cork. The
woman’s husband had just left to drive their grandchildren home when the woman
heard their dog barking. She went out to the back door to investigate and an armed
man, wearing a balaclava confronted her. A gang of three men, armed with a rifle, claw
hammer and Tazar stun gun forced their way into the house and tied the woman up
