In Ottomy Drive Clane, a woman left her house for 10 minutes to do shopping and arrived back to find her house had been ransacked. Nothing was taken.

In Esmondale, Naas between 4-6pm, occupants left the house for a short time, when it was broken into and several items were taken.

In the Redhills area of Kildare Town between 8pm on March 7 and the early hours of March 8, a power washer was taken from a farm shed.
