Local Robberies

The Yutopia shop on Main Street was broken into and approx €7000 of merchandise was stolen. The shop, is amongst other things a "Head Shop" that sells substances that give "legal highs" and it appears it was these items that were targeted and stolen:

... Thousands of euros worth of ‘legal highs’ was taken from the ‘Yutopia’ adult shop on Main Street between Saturday night and the early hours of Sunday morning.

The substances, in powder and tablet form, are estimated to be worth in the region of 7,000euro.

Gardai said the culprits gained access to the store through the front door.

They’re appealing for any witnesses to come forward and contact them on 074 97 21021 ...
Yutopia has been in the news before and it's also a sex shop. But, besides's its "sensationalist" and "scandalous" having €7k of goods stolen is not good for any business. Someone's bound to have heard something. If you did, phone the Gardai at the number above.

I wanted to make a funny quip, like "the culprits were last seen giggling their way down Main Street", and I'm sure a lot of people will think this is a bit funny, but whomever robbed the place is probably going to be reselling the stuff and probably unscrupulously to kids. Whose business are they going to rob next?

Also, over the weekend the Bundoran Motor Garage was broken into on Friday night and 2 cars were stolen:

... Thieves broke into Bundoran Motor Garage in the East End of the town on Friday night.

Two cars were taken, although one has since been recovered outside the town.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses to come forward and have said investigations are on-going.
Expect more crime because of the economy. :(

And almost exactly a month ago there were break-ins on Main street! I'd bet it's same the bloody bolloxs:
