Dundalk gardai investigating two home burglaries

Gardai are investigating following two break-ins to homes in the Red Barns Road and Dunmore Avenue.

At 11:35pm on Saturday, February 10, a neighbour went to investigate a home on Dunmore Avenue after hearing the house alarm go off. They found the back door had been forced open and the home had been ransacked.

Gardai say it is not clear yet whether anything was taken during the burglary.

A second burglary took place at a home in Riverside Drive on the Red Barns road at 10:45pm on Sunday, February 11.

At approximately 10:45pm, the back patio door of the home was broken into. Gardai say the house was ransacked. Two watches were stolen from the home.

Gardai believe the two incidents are related.
