A couple of sneak thieves cleaned out a man’s van while the owner was having his dinner.

The robbery happened in the car park of O’Dwyers pub in  Dunboyne last Wednesday evening between 6.30 and 6.50 pm and the victim told Meath Live, ‘If and when I catch them they’ll be sorry lads.

‘They stole over €2500 worth of power washing equipment and honestly, they nearly destroyed my business.

‘I am shocked and stressed out at what happened but hopefully, they will be caught as someone will know them from these photos and they were also spotted interfering with vans in Hollywoodrath the day before so chances are they’ll be recognized.’

Anyone with any information is asked to contact any Garda station.
