In light of the recent spate of thefts of trailers in the Athboy area, Athboy Gardaí stopped a vehicle on Connaught St, Athboy towing an Ifor Williams twin-axle trailer.
The trailer was seized as possible stolen property; Gardaí later discovered that the owner had reported the trailer stolen from Castlepollard on March 13th.
One male was arrested and charged with handling stolen property; he has been released on bail and will appear before Trim District Court next month, according to a spokesperson.
Releasing a statement, Meath Crime Prevention said: “ It is recommended to have photos of your property and to have it engraved with an Eircode or phone number.”
