Irish police hunt THIEF who has stolen 17 Liverpool shirts in sports store crime spree

Irish police are hunting a THIEF who is reported to have stolen 17 Liverpool shirts from two different sport stores in two separate incidents last week. 

The crime spree began on Thursday May 23 at JD Sports in the MacDonagh Junction shopping centre in Kilkenny, where 10 shirts were removed, and the second happened at the Lifestyle Sports outlet in the SAME shopping centre just two days later, when another seven items were taken 

“The first incident of theft from the sports store (JD Sports) happened at MacDonagh Junction on last Thursday, the 23rd of May,” Garda Brian Wilkinson told KCLR News.

“Ten Liverpool shirts were taken from a rack, they were placed into a bag. The person who took them then, who was a male, left the store with ten shirts without making payment for them. 

“The other incident then, possibly linked, occurred last Saturday and again this one happened in Lifestyle Sports which is also in the same centre and similarly a male removed seven Liverpool related items.”

“The suspect also had a black beard and was wearing glasses.
