Recent break-in at the Londis supermarket, Adamstown.

Londis AdamstownIn the early hours of Friday morning the 30th of November there was a break-in at the Londis store in Adamstown. The raid took place around 6am before the staff arrived for work; a large quantity of cigarettes was taken. On the same night the Londis at the Griffeen Centre was also raided again the target was cigarettes. This is not the first time Londis in Adamstown was raided about 2 years ago just before closing shoppers and staff were surprised when a man entered waving a knife and got away with a sum of cash from the till. Earlier this year another unit ‘Pamper Yourself’ was raided again during darkness and all its fixtures were removed.

Some concerned residents and the tenants of the retailed units have raised issues about the 50 uncompleted units over the retail units at the Sentinel building, located on Station Road. There have been a number of break-ins from the rear of the block, teenage kids not from the area have been seen accessing the block over the hoarding. Over time major internal damage has been done to the unfinished units. It’s unclear why the developer has chosen to leave this block in an unfinished state, with all other housing units completed and most occupied. Castlethorn has recently begun building new units in Stratton Square area.

Last year the developer employed an additional security guard to observe the block during the hours of darkness. One would imagine the best way to bring greater security to the retail units would be to complete the residential units above and get the occupied. Remove the hoarding from the rear of the block would ease residents concern regarding security and anti-social behaviour.
