A computer console worth €400 has been taken from a home in Coosan.
The owner of a home in Shancurragh came back to find the front door of the house open last Saturday, September 15. On looking around, the person noticed that a Playstation computer console was missing.
The break-in is thought to have occurred sometime between 4pm and 5.15pm when the occupant was out.
While no arrests have been made in the case, Gardai are looking to speak to a young cyclist in his late teens seen in the area carrying an item under his arm and heading towards the main road earlier on Saturday afternoon.
Anyone who can assist the investigation should call Athlone Garda Station 09064 98550.
