Gardaí are investigating the theft of hundreds of litres of fuel from a yard outside Monaghan town. 600 litres of diesel were stolen from a tank in the Febane area of Monaghan.
An empty 1000 litre cube was also taken from the premises in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Gardai at Monaghan Garda Station say they are particularly interested in the movements of a black jeep with a Northern Irish registration that was spotted in the area towing a trailer.
They are appealing for anyone with information, or who many have witnessed suspicious activity in the area to contact them on 047 77200, with a reminder to always report suspicious vehicles – especially those spotted at night.
