Burglary at Clashagad, Roscrea, Co. Tipperary on 14/5/21

Gardaí at Roscrea Garda Station are investigating a burglary at a private residence that occurred near Roscrea, Co. Tipperary on the afternoon of Friday, 14 May 2021. 

On the date in question the victim was leaving his house at approximately 11.30am to collect his pension at a nearby post office. Whenever he left his house he was confronted by an unknown male who introduced himself as a Garda and said that he was there to inspect the man’s firearm. A second male was standing nearby but did not interact with the victim at this time. 

The victim took the man into his house and showed him where he kept his firearm. While inside the house the suspect located a sum of cash and signalled for the other suspect to come into the house. The suspects took the money and told the man that they would count it in their car before returning it to him. They then left the premises but did not return. It is believed that they left the scene in a dark coloured Ford Mondeo. When the victim discovered that the men had left with the money he alerted the Gardaí. 

The Ford Mondeo (06 registration) was purchased on the 13th of May 2021 in Clondalkin, Dublin 22. 

Description of Suspects: 

Suspect 1: Approximately 50 years of age, 6' and wearing a peaked cap.

Suspect 2: Late 30’s, 5'2”- 3”, with short fair hair and a very thin build.
