GARDAI in Limerick are offering advice to pub owners after an attempted theft of a keg from a premises. 

On Saturday, September 3, a pub owner in the Pallasgreen area was just getting up at 8am when he heard a noise in his back yard. He looked out and saw a male in the yard. 

The pub owner ran out of his door in time to see this male getting into the back of a Black Opel Vectra.

The car took off but on viewing the CCTV it showed the male prizing the shed door open, taking out a keg of beer and trying to leave with it.

Once he realised that he had been seen he dropped the keg and jumped into the car.

In this case, the CCTV was of great evidential value as the registration number of the car was established and this lead to gardai arresting a male.

Sergeant Ber Leetch, Crime Prevention Officer from Henry Street garda station offered advice to pub owners.

"Pub owners must store their beer kegs out of sight, ideally chained together with a very strong chain and lock. A bolt and lock of a good standard must be used to secure any door.

"Sensor lighting is a good deterrent; consider extending the intruder alarm from the pub to the shed the beer kegs are stored if it not already connected but CCTV in this case lead to an arrest so consider installing this too".
