Gardai investigate possible link between two Donegal crimes

Gardai are examining a possible link between a burglary and robbery in Co Donegal.

A pub in Donegal Town and a bookies in Raphoe have been broken into in the past ten days.

Staff at the Boylesports Bookmakers in Raphoe were held at gunpoint last Friday evening just after 9pm.

Two men armed with handguns, got away with a quantity of cash.

And in the early hours of Tuesday morning, two men were captured on CCTV entering The Coach House Bar in Donegal Town.

The thieves there got away with a large sum of money and a quantity of stock.

Gardai now believe there could be a possible link between the robbery and burglary after matching CCTV footage showed one of the men wearing a distinctive orange hoodie and black jacket.
