Gardaí investigating another aggravated burglary in Dundalk

Gardaí are investigating another aggravated burglary which occurred in the town on Sunday evening.

The incident took place at a house in the Mount Avenue area at around 8pm.

A woman in her 60s was present as a man broke into her home before escaping with a sum of money and a quantity of jewellery.

Thankfully no injuries were sustained but the woman was understandably quiet shaken by the incident.

This is the latest in a series of aggravated burglaries in the town in recent weeks with a young man tied up during a break-in to a house in nearby Ard Easmuinn the week before. Similar incidents also took place last month on the St Alphonsus Road and in Blackrock.

Anyone who was in the Mount Avenue area on Sunday evening who noticed anything suspicious is asked to contact Dundalk Garda Station on 042 9335577.
