Gardai Man Crime Scene In Coolock


UP to nine Gardai are currently manning a crime scene in Coolock today after numerous freshly dug holes were found in the area.

Residents reported that men wearing hi-viz jackets began digging up local footpaths without reason at 8am this morning.

When approached the vandals refused to talk to homeowners about the holes and continued on digging regardless.

“They just didn’t seem to care about the damage they were causing.” said one eyewitness. “It was like we weren’t even there.”

So far an estimated 34 holes were made in the Coolock area alone.

Luckily, Gardai arrived on the crime scene at around 11 o’clock to secure and quarndon off the holes with red barriers.

“It’s great they came along,” said resident Terry Price. “The only thing is they don’t seem to see the lads still digging behind them. They’re just standing there oblivious to the whole thing. It’s like a panto down here. Everyone keeps shouting ‘they’re behind you’, but they just don’t listen. I don’t know what’s going on. It’s bizarre.”

Meanwhile, reports are coming in from all over the country of similar instances with vandals in hi-Viv jackets digging ho0les.
