‘Devastation’ as Louth SPCA’s shelters are broken into overnight
Gardaí are investigating a break-in to the Louth SPCA’s shelters in Walterstown overnight.
Inspector Fiona Squibb arrived this morning to the kennels off the N52 Dundalk to Ardee Road to discover that the premises had been broken into.
Those responsible are understood to have stolen a new CCTV system and caused serious damage to the office door and the inside of the mobile unit.
Reacting to the incident on Facebook, Ms Squibb said: “So on arrival at kennels this morn, devastation. We were broken into last night.
“The office door double barrel lock has been smashed. We need new door urgently. Also, our new CCTV system was stolen. Mobile— bleach all over, curtains pulled off and missing, lights pulled off walls, vinegar thrown around, drink on the mat on floor. Everyone absolutely in bits. Any help appreciated. Garda called.”
To add insult to injury, the break-in has coincided with Fiona’s birthday yesterday.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact their local Garda Station.
