Thieves ran­sack church sac­risty


Bray People - - NEWS -

THIEVES BROKE in to the Holy Redeemer Church in Bray and ran­sacked the sac­risty in the early hours of last Thurs­day morn­ing.

Three taber­na­cles were dam­aged by four youths who broke three in­ter­nal doors.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Frank Keeneghan of Bray Garda Sta­tion said that a sum of cash was taken, but it was ‘not sub­stan­tial’.

Mass that morn­ing was re­lo­cated to the Lit­tle Flower Hall on the grounds of the church as gar­dai in­ves­ti­gated the scene.

Det. Insp. Keeneghan of Bray Garda Sta­tion said that they are fol­low­ing a def­i­nite line of en­quiry with re­gard to the case and hope to make ar­rests shortly.

He added that the young males broke a CCTV de­vice.

‘It was a sense­less crime,’ ac­cord­ing to Det. Insp. Keeneghan. ‘ They got away with just a very small amount of money. There was never go­ing to be much there for them to take.’Fr. Robert Col­clough said that the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is now in the hands of the gar­dai and the par­ish has given them a re­port.

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion or who saw sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity around the church overnight can con­tact Bray Garda Sta­tion on (01) 6665300 or the garda con­fi­den­tial line (1800) 666111.
