Bagenalstown Gardaí are investigating
Bagenalstown Gardaí are investigating a burglary at the Step House Hotel in Borris in the early hours of October 26.
At 4.30am a night porter for the hotel disturbed an intruder on the premises.
The staff member went to an area of the hotel where they could contact Gardaí and they waited for them to arrive.
The raider fled the scene and nothing was taken but there was damage done to a front window of the hotel.
The direction of travel of the intruder afterwards is not known but Gardaí are examining CCTV.
Bagenalstown Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have been in the area at that time or who may have seen anything suspicious or a car or van in the area.
Gardaí believe the raider was in the area for up to an hour beforehand.
Anyone with information can contact Bagenalstown Gardaí on 059 972 1212.
