Public urged to 'park smart' after spate of thefts in Tipp

Gardai are encouraging the public not to leave valuables in parked cars.

Gardaí are appealing for vehicle owners to "park smart” following five thefts from cars in Cahir from September 4th-6th.    
In these incidents items such as sunglasses, cash and electronics were stolen. In each incident, Gardaí attended to carry out examinations of the scene and conduct enquires but no arrests have been made to date.  
Gardaí are appealing for all vehicle owners to ensure they lock their vehicle no matter where it is parked. Do not store valuables in it, but if you do have to, keep them out of sight. 
Crime Prevention Officer Tom O’Dwyer said: "Unfortunately some of the cars where left unlocked. Criminals will go around trying car doors until they get one that is left unlocked, so let’s not make it easy for them. 
"Wherever you park your vehicle, we would always advise you to take your property with you and ensure the vehicle is locked, alarmed and parked in a secure, well-lit location. Try not to leave any valuables in it whatsoever. 
"If you do see someone in your area acting suspiciously, day or night, don’t think twice about calling us.”
