It is thought the alleged burglary happened at approximately 3pm yesterday.
A Dundalk woman has issued an ultimatum to the men who burgled her nanny's home.
On Sunday night the local woman issued a message on Facebook addressed to the men who burgled the home of the elderly grandmother on the Doylesfort Road.
She has given them 48 hours to return jewellery and cash to a local shop or she will go to Gardaí with CCTV footage.
She said on Facebook: "To the small minded ***holes who broke into my nanny's house today - approximately 3pm - and wrecked her beautiful home!
"You have 48 hours to return what you stole. You've been caught on CCTV!
"Before the footage is handed to guards - return the jewellery and the money to local shop - Arthurs - before you are named, shamed and in prison.
"48 hours and counting. You should be ashamed of yourselves!"
