We mentioned on Twitter a few weeks back that there a number of incidents of cars having their contents rifled through. This was on sunday night/monday morning of the 15th March. We know of 2 incidents that were reported to the Gardai – both just off the top road.

More incidents have also been reported from Monday night last – 5th April – in a number of locations just off the Strandhill Road; Again – the modus operandi seems to be to go for unlocked vehicles in search of cash. Valuables do not appear to be of an interest to these people.

So if you are in the habit of leaving your car unlocked at night – this might convince you to think otherwise. What makes this rather nasty is the fact that whoever is responsible clearly knows the area and is very calmly checking cars that are unalaramed/unlocked. A serious case of neck – let’s hope the Gardai can nip this in the bud quickly – if you have seen anything suspicious, you should call Sligo Gardai at 071- 915 7000.
