Naas Garda Station
Naas gardai believe there is a connection between an attempted break-in at a house in the town and a burglary at another.
The incident began when a man rang the doorbell at an address in Kingsfurze at 10.45am on August 17. A female inside the houser noticed a man in the back garden and summoned her brother who shouted at him. The would-be intruder fled the scene with a second man and nothing was stolen.
“The doorbell was rung to establish if there was anyone inside,” garda spokesman said.
On the same day (between 10.15am-1.30pm) the houseowner returned to their home at Sunday’s Well to find the front door had been prised open. Drawers were opened in the kitchen and bedrooms and a quantity of jewellery was stolen. The value of the stolen items was not immediately known.
