Gardai in Athlone are investigating a burglary in which over €2,000 worth of Herbalife products was stolen during the early hours of this morning (Friday).
The incident happened in a unit at Blyry Industrial Estate.
Raiders forced entry through a rear door of the premises and made off with the Herbalife products and a small quantity of cash.
