Gardai have identified the owners of two high-powered motor cars that were dismantled by criminals in an apparent effort to smuggle them out of the country.
This morning, the Garda official Twitter page posted pictures of a stolen Audi and a BMW, asking members of the public to get in touch if they have any information regarding the missing vehicles.
The posts reveal that both cars were stolen from the Rathfarnham area of Dublin in recent days.
Gardai discovered the car parts inside a trailer which was destined for Lithuania.
