Gardaí in Ballaghaderreen are appealing for information following the theft of a cattle trailer in recent days.
The 14 foot trailer was stolen from a farmyard in the townland of Grallagh, in Fairymount, Castlerea on February 19th.
When it was discovered to be stolen, the chain securing the trailer was also missing.
Sergeant Damian Bartley, Crime Prevention Officer based at Roscommon Garda Station, says trailers should be stored safely to make it more difficult for thieves to access.
"Store it somewhere safe. The location of your trailer is probably the number one factor in whether it is a target for thieves. A trailer left on the road is much easier to steal. Opportunist thieves even drive around looking for an accessible vehicle to steal. A secure yard or garage will deter many thieves"
Anyone in the vicinity of the crime or who has any information is asked to contact Ballaghaderreen Garda Station on 094 986 0002
