A garda investigation has been launched into the theft of insulation bales from a Co Louth building site.

Gardai are investigating the theft of 20 insulation bales (four sheets per bale) from a building site at Strand Road, Termonfeckin, Co Louth between October 24 and today.

Gardai have been informed that if these items are set alight, the resulting smoke and fumes would be toxic and have the potential to cause harm to those not wearing the appropriate breathing apparatus.

Gardai are appealing for any information to contact Drogheda garda station on 041 9874200, the garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station, and would like to make the local community aware of the possible dangers if this material is burned.
