Garda appeal

Gardaí are interested in speaking to anyone who may have been in the area at the time, or who may have seen the silver/grey car in Callan or the surrounding area

Gardaí are seeking witnesses following an incident in Callan in the early hours of Saturday morning, in which three individuals wearing balaclavas fled the scene in a silver or grey car.

An alarm was activated in a dental practice in Callan at around 12.30am, and local Gardaí responded. On the way, they were met by a silver/grey car, believed to be a Mazda, with three occupants on board.

Gardaí pursued the vehicle for some time, backed up by resources from Thomastown and Kilkenny. However, the car managed to get away.

When Gardaí inspected the premises, they found the front door damaged. Entry had been gained to the building, and offices had been searched.

Gardaí are interested in speaking to anyone who may have been in the area at the time, or who may have seen the silver/grey car in Callan or the surrounding area on Friday night/ Saturday morning. Contact Kilkenny Garda Station on 056-7775000 or Garda Confidential on 1800-666111.
