The scam has prompted Gardai to appeal to business owners to review their security systems.Division Crime Prevention Officer Sgt Paul Wallace said businesses need to review their physical and electronic security systems.“These gangs have been watching key-holders to determine how long it takes them to respond to alarms being triggered.“They then know how long they have to enter a premises and steal goods. They have been doing this over the Christmas period. “Business-owners need to review and beef up their security systems or face being the next victim on the list of these guys. Business-owners need to work with Gardai in protecting their premises,” he said.And Sgt Wallace said that members of the public who buy stolen goods are also adding to the crime industry.“It is a known and established fact that criminals are targeting business premises in order to steal high value goods which are then being sold off at knock down prices. Members of the public who are purchasing items from dubious sources at prices considerably lower than normal retailing prices are contributing to the growth industry at this time of year- Crime’.Advice to Business Owners / Operators:1.

Woman records brother after confronting him about raping her

first_imgA woman secretly recorded a family meeting at which she confronted her brother about raping her when they were children, a court has heard.Excerpts of the audio recording on the woman’s phone were played to a Central Criminal Court jury during the 43-year-old man’s trial last month. In the recording, he expressed apologies to his sister but did not make admissions.The Donegal man, who cannot be named to protect the woman’s anonymity, had pleaded not guilty to four charges of anal rape, one of oral rape and one of sexual assault at the family home in the north-west between May 1991 and June 1993.The Irish Examiner reports that after a trial in March a jury returned unanimous guilty verdicts on all charges. The man has no previous convictions.Defence counsel Michael O’Higgins SC submitted that though the man accepted the jury had returned verdicts and that he must live by them, he was making no admissions to the crimes.A local garda told Pauline Walley SC, prosecuting, that the man abused his sister when he was in his mid-teens and she was aged between ten and 12 years. He committed the crimes in the family home while their parents were out working.The garda said the woman made her garda statement in 2015 after tensions between her brother and other family members went unresolved.The garda said the family found out about the allegations following a confrontation between the woman, her brother and his wife in early 2013.For full story see https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/donegal-man-convicted-of-raping-his-sister-when-they-were-children-to-be-sentenced-in-may-917162.htmlWoman records brother after confronting him about raping her was last modified: April 15th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtdonegalrapelast_img read more
