Post of­fice raided

De­cem­ber 1999

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

RAIDERS who re­versed their car into the door and front win­dow of Balt­in­glass Post Of­fice made off with a haul of cig­a­rettes, sweets and PlayS­ta­tion games.

The raiders then broke into the Chi­nese restau­rant next door to the post of­fice, but left with­out tak­ing any­thing.

The ram­ming of the post of­fice at Slaney Mall hap­pened at 5.07 a.m. on Sun­day morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to Gar­dai.

The ac­tion was also cap­tured on the shop’s se­cu­rity cam­era.

How­ever, the film does not show the reg­is­tra- tion of the ve­hi­cle used by the in­trud­ers, who aren’t be­lieved to be from the area.

The cam­era shows that one of the men in the car en­tered the post of­fice and made off with the prop­erty, which had a to­tal value of over £2,000.

The thieves did not take any postal items, such as stamps or postal or­ders.

Ac­cord­ing to the Gar­dai, the thieves then forced their way in through a win­dow of the Chi­nese restau­rant next door but left with­out tak­ing any­thing.
