A man has been arrested after a series of burglaries in Co Tipperary. 

The man who is in his 20s, was charged in relation to seven incidents of burglary, theft from cars and trespassing in Thurles on May 8.

He was arrested after an apartment was searched yesterday by investigating gardaí from the Thurles Detective Unit. The search resulted in the recovery of some of the suspected stolen property.

Gardaí had received reports of a burglary and three thefts from cars in the Mitchel Street and Sli Na Suire areas in Thurles Town in the early hours of last Saturday morning.

Items stolen during the incidents included cash and mobile phones.

Gardai said unsuccessful attempts had also been made to break into three houses in the area.

Crime Prevention Officer for the Tipperary Garda Division, Sergeant Tom O’Dwyer said "Wherever you park your vehicle, we would always advise you to take your property with you and ensure the vehicle is locked and alarmed.

“When we leave items like cash, credit cards, jewellery and electronics on display in our cars, they are clear targets for criminals.”

The man was due to appear before Thurles District Court, which is sitting at Nenagh, this morning at 10.30am.
