A suspected professional burglary gang targeted two business in Leitrim and deactivated their security measures. We always like to be one step ahead of burglar’s tricks, read on to see how your HomeSecure alarm will still come to your aid even if a burglar tries to tamper with the system. The two affected businesses were Carrick on Shannon Physiotherapy and Aura Leitrim Leisure. The two businesses were burgled either late Sunday evening or possibly early Monday morning further investigation is needed.
The businesses were closed while a Garda forensic team gathered evidence at the scene of the crimes.
Both buildings reside in the same locality and the Garda Superintendent Kevin English told sources that although neither business leaves much cash on the premises overnight a sum of cash was stolen from each business.
Aura Leitrim Leisure had both CCTV and an Alarm system that were deactivated prior to the burglary occurring. The superintendent stated that this showed all the “hallmarks of a professional gang.” If anyone noticed anything suspicious occurring in the areas in question on Sunday evening or Monday morning they are asked to contact Carrick-on-Shannon Garda Station on 071 9650510
This crime shows that burglars can be quite bold in entering a premises with an old alarm system thankfully we only provide our customers with new anti-tamper monitored alarm systems. If a burglar were to attempt to remove our alarm system or tamper with it in any way a signal is immediately sent to our monitoring centre Chubb Ireland, we also have the highest level of encryption so burglars cannot send any signal to the alarm or block signals coming from the alarm system.
HomeSecure wireless alarm systems are also safe from wire tampering, where a burglar would snip the wire to the siren.
We ask our customers to remain vigilant and always set their alarm in stay mode when home or away mode if leaving their home.
