Vandal attack in Johnstown

The smashing of nearly a dozen large panes of glass at the front of the Johnstown Shopping Centre over the weekend has been condemned by Cllr Shane Cassells.
The attack on the centre was carried out in the early hours of Saturday morning causing extensive damage to the front of the facility.
Cllr Cassells has called for immediate action to be taken to deal with the scourge of anti-social behaviour in the area which he states is now turning into low level criminality.
“Smashing the front windows of a shopping centre is criminality pure and simple,” remarked Cassells.
“There are certain people going around trying to make excuses for this kind of behaviour but there are none and action needs to be taken to stamp it out.
“I met with security staff in the centre on Saturday morning who had been called to the scene by Gardai during the night. They are sick to the back teeth of these thugs carrying out this kind of action.”
“A whole community cannot be held to ransom by a small amount of gurriers. The residents and business people deserve to live their lives in peace and not be subjected to this carry on,” Cllr Cassells concluded.
