June 2001

Bray People - - NEWS -

IN ONE of the most un­usual crimes seen by gar­daí in Balt­in­glass, two youths broke into the lo­cal fire sta­tion and made off with the fire en­gine early on Sun­day morn­ing.

At about 4.20 a.m., the two forced open the lock on the build­ing at the square in Balt­in­glass, found keys to the fire en­gine and drove off in the ve­hi­cle.

A garda pa­trol car from Balt­in­glass sta­tion gave chase and even­tu­ally halted the fire en­gine in the Job­stown area.

Two teenagers were ar­rested and ques­tioned by gar­daí in Balt­in­glass. ‘It’s the first theft of a fire en­gine that I can re­call in the area,’ re­marked a garda spokesper­son.
