A MAN HAS been charged over two burglaries and an incident of criminal damage in Co Tipperary. 

Just before 4.30am on 19 November, gardaí received a report of an alarm going off at a supermarket on Birr Road in Roscrea. 

They attended the scene and found that a trolley had been used to smash through one of the windows. 

A patrol of the area was carried out while gardaí reviewed CCTV. 

A possible suspect was identified and a description of the man was circulated to all gardaí in the county. 

Just under an hour later, a man aged in his 40s was arrested by gardaí. He was taken to Templemore Garda Station and detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. 

When the man was searched in the station, gardaí found he was in possession of candles. Gardaí later received a report that a church in Parkmore, Roscrea had been broken into and candles had been stolen. 

Gardaí also received a report that someone had damaged a window at another supermarket on Gantly Road, Roscrea during the early hours of the morning.
