Further out the road at Banna Beach, an attempted break-in on an ice-cream truck took place. The owner arrived to the vehicle on the morning of Tuesday, July 23 to discover the padlocks were broken and the door was slightly prised open. However, entry was not gained to the vehicle.

Over in Barrow, between July 25 and July 27, an electric fence was taken. Gardai say it would have taken quite a while to steal the fence, so they are hoping if anyone witnessed anything suspicious they would contact them.

Closer to Tralee, between 7pm on July 24 and 7am on July  25 items were stolen from a construction site at Skehanagh just outside town.  Four wheelbarrows, a ladder, a large amount of nails and copper were stolen.

A van was stolen from an area near the Manor West Retail Park. The white Ford Tipper was parked in an area behind the retail park between July 26/27. The van was later recovered in Limerick.

Also, an American family staying in a premises in Ballydavid were awoken by banging on the door at 2.30am on Tuesday, July 23.

The caller became very aggressive and kicked in the door. The gardai were called and the man fled the house. Nothing was taken in the incident and nobody was hurt.

Gardaí are appealing to the public if they have any information in relation to any of the above incidents, to contact them at Tralee Garda Station on 066-7102300.
