GARDAI are also advising jewellers and cash for gold outlets to be alert a significant amount of jewellery was stolen during a break in at a house in Corbally.

The burglary happened sometime between noon and 2pm on Thursday, May 10 at a house at Janemount Park, Corbally.

According to gardai, the culprits gained entry to the house by forcing open the garage door and then forcing the kitchen door.

Once inside, they stole a number of items of jewellery including a gold bracelet with antique coins on it, a gold bracelet with diamonds, five gold rings, four of which had diamonds on them and one had a ruby stone. A gold watch was also stolen.

“We believe that the culprits made good their escape through an upstairs bedroom window which led out onto a flat roof. They then when out over the rear garden wall,” said Sgt Brian Broderick.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact the Gardaí at Mary Street at (061) 483870.
