Break-in at parochial house in Coosan

An attempted burglary took place at the parochial house in Coosan last weekend.

Sergeant Andrew Haran of Athlone Garda Station said a person gained entry to the house through an unlocked window at approximately 9.30pm on Saturday last.

He said it was possible that the person who entered the house may have been disturbed during the break-in, as they had left without taking anything.

In general, Sergeant Haran said the level of crime in the Athlone area has been relatively low in recent times and this was the case again last week.

"Thankfully we had no major issues on the roads, no other burglaries, and no shoplifting or other things like that," he commented.
