'Its a crime spree at this stage': Third local business targeted by burglars

Gardaí at Roxboro Road are investigating after a third commercial premises in a Limerick suburb was targeted by burglars this week

GARDAÍ have launched an investigation into an overnight burglary at a beauty salon in Limerick city, the third local business over the last four days to be targeted within a mile radius. 

Gardaí in Roxboro are investigating a burglary on during the early hours this Friday morning at Seventh Heaven beauty salon at the Courtfields Shopping Centre in Raheen, during which a sum of money was taken.

This burglary follows a break-in at Plush Beauty on Father Russell Road during the early hours of Tuesday morning, and a second break-in at Mungret Fresh and Fast, also known as Mungret Kebab, during the early hours of Thursday morning. 

“It's a crime spree at this stage,” Metropolitan Mayor Daniel Butler said. 

“It is incredibly alarming and highlights an urgent need for resources to be deployed to the surrounding area to stop this from happening again. There is a good chance that these incidents could all be related.”
