Gardaí probe theft of vintage car found burnt-out in Ballinrobe

GARDAÍ in Castlebar are investigating the theft of a vintage car which was later found burnt-out in Ballinrobe.

The vehicle, a Citroen 2CV which was a popular feature of the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in the county town as well as being used for promotional events by Castlebar Mitchels, was taken from Station Road on Friday night/Saturday morning where it had been parked in preparation for the St. Patrick's Day Parade, which was later cancelled due to weather conditions.

The fire brigade was called to attend a burning vehicle close to Main Street. Ballinrobe, in the early hours of Saturday morning. The burnt-out car was later identifed as the Citroen 2CV in question.

Now an appeal is being made to help track down those responsible. Those with information should contact Castlebar Garda Station on (094) 903 8200. A certain line of inquiry is being followed by the gardaí, it is understood.
