Two men are due to appear before the next sitting of Roscommon District Court in April charged with theft at a pub in Lecarrow last Friday.

The duo, who are not from the local area, were disturbed by the owner of the hostelry in the centre of the village just after 8am on Friday morning while attempting to get away with a number of beer kegs and property. They dropped the items and fled the scene but were arrested just 20 minutes later by Roscommon gardai. It's thought the van they were travelling in crashed close to the railway gates at Ballymurray. All property was recovered.The pair, both in their 20s from Dublin, were brought to Roscommon Garda Station and detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act for questioning. They were later charged with theft and released on bail to appear before Roscommon District Court on April 5 next.
