Gardaí have issued a warning to homeowners and farmers to keep their machinery and fuel supplies secure after a significant quantity of diesel was stolen from a farmyard in Co. Limerick.

Gardaí in Limerick have issued a warning to both homeowners and farmers to keep their property secure, after reports of fuel thefts in the county.

According to sources, a substantial quantity of diesel was stolen from a farm in the Ballylanders area of Co. Limerick. The theft occurred at approximately 4pm on Saturday, February 2nd, with preparators taking diesel from the diesel tank on site.

The owner of the farm then confronted the thieves, though they escaped with the fuel in a Toyota Avensis car. The car was silver in colour and Gardaí confirmed that it had a Dublin registration.

The incident is now under investigation by Gardaí and they are urging any witnesses or anyone who may have seen the car in question to contact them on 061-382940.

This is the second report of fuel theft in recent days, after diesel was reported stolen from tractors parked at the Bord na Mona site in Clonfert co. Galway recently, as reported by us here.

There were also further reports of fuel thefts in Leitrim and Co. Sligo, with Gardaí urging the public to remain vigilant.

Four people were arrested on February 6th, in connection with the theft of fuel and electric cabling.
