Bray People - - Bray People - Mary FOG­A­RTY

GATE­CRASH­ERS from Bray are be­ing blamed for a spate of theft and van­dal­ism dur­ing a house party.

A lap­top com­puter, hand­bags, wal­lets, ipods and phones were taken and a car be­long­ing to the mother of the 25-year-old man su­per­vis­ing the party was pelted with eggs and glue.

Lightswitches, re­mote con­trols and locks in the house were filled with glue.

The Rochestown Av­enue woman is now ap­peal­ing to the peo­ple of Bray for in­for­ma­tion that may lead to the re­turn of the lap­top taken from her house dur­ing the party, which was for her teenage daugh­ter.

A re­ward is on the ta­ble for its safe re­cov­ery.

The woman said that her adult son was su­per­vis­ing the get­to­gether, but was un­able to con­trol the gate­crash­ers.

‘It is my un­der­stand­ing that about 15 boys from the Bray area came un­in­vited and I would be anx­ious to speak to any of them as well as any­one else who was there,’ she said.

‘The key was taken from the sit­ting room door af­ter be­ing locked and the lock filled with glue, there was su­per-glue on the lightswitches and the re­mote con­trol.

The com­puter be­longed to a stu­dent lodg­ing in the house, who had left it in her bed­room. ‘The lap­top con­tains three years of her col­lege work and projects.’

She said that Gar­daí were called on the night by her 25year-old son and that any un­in­vited guests left the home around an hour af­ter their ar­rival.

‘All I care about is the lap­top, which was taken from an up­stairs bed­room, as this could af­fect the stu­dent’s fu­ture and her ca­reer,’ said the woman. ‘I would be very happy if it was sim­ply re­turned to us.’ Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion that may lead to its safe re­cov­ery can phone (087) 9429635.
