CASH, electronics and a car were stolen after a ‘student house’ in Limerick was broken into at the weekend.

According to gardai, the culprits entered via a patio door in the Castletroy house which had been left unlocked accidentally by one of the occupants.

"The students had their individual bedroom doors locked but these were easily forced open and two televisions, two Play Stations, an iPad, cash and vouchers were all stolen," said a garda spokesperson of the incident, which happened between 11.30am and 8.30pm in the evening last Sunday, January 21.

"The thieves also found the keys of a Volkswagen Golf and that was taken too.

"Gardai would urge listeners to never assume that the doors and windows of a home are secure, that somebody locked them, each must be checked before the house is left unattended."

Gardai at Henry Street are investigating the incident and anyone with information is asked to come forward.

In another break-in, a house on Lord Edward Street was broken into by smashing a rear window, gardai said.

This happened between 10am and 2pm last Friday, January 19. A 60 inch Panasonic TV and Xbox 360 were taken.
