Thieves Breaking into Cars

Gardai have this evening urged the public to be on the lookout for a dark coloured Ford Focus saloon that has been linked to a number of break-ins to parked vehicles.

They are currently intensifying their hunt for the culprits following an alarming spate of thefts from cars. The latest alert follows a number of incidents this Saturday involving the targeting of parked vehicles in the Kerry and Cork area, where cars in Macroom, Millstreet and Rathmore have been broken into and goods were stolen today.

Gardaí issued a warning at 7.30pm this Saturday asking people to keep a close watch for the Focus that is now likely to be in or around the Killarney area, and have reiterated their plea to drivers not to leave any valuables in cars as the opportunist thieves are circling the area waiting to pounce.  (full story from
