A car was broken into at the Long Woman's Grave last weekend.

Dundalk gardai have issued an appeal to people in the locality not to leave items unattended in vehicles as they will “encourage thieves”.

The appeal comes following a theft of items from a car which was parked at the Long Woman's Grave between 5 and 6pm on Sunday, February 11.

Gardai say the owner of the vehicle had gone for a walk in the area when their car was targeted by thieves.

A spokesperson for Dundalk gardai said: “As the evenings start to get brighter, gardai would like to issue an appeal to people in the locality not to leave valuable items in your car when heading off for a walk as it will only encourage thieves.”

The garda also warned against placing valuable items in the boot of the car as “thieves could be watching”.
