Firearms and a large quantity of jewellery stolen in burglary in Jenkinstown

Gardaí are warning people to take extra security measures over the holiday period as opportunist criminals seek out empty homes.
In recent days a house at Jenkinstown, Conahy was targeted and a number of firearms and a large quantity of valuable jewellery was stolen.
Entry was forced into the property but as the residents were away at the time the incident did not come to light for a number of days.
The burglary took place between July 4 and 15 and gardaí are appealing to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the vicinity.
Gardaí are also warning people to take extra security measures when they are away and to inform their neighbours to be vigilant.
