Gatecrashers raid house during party
LAPTOP REWARD WOMAN APPEALS TO CALLOUS THIEVES
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.
