Thieves steal from locked car

Sara Gahan

A Gorey woman enjoying some last-minute shopping was left stunned when she discovered her car had been broken into and all her purchases stolen while parked in Dunnes Stores car park.

It is believed that thieves used a device to intercept the remote central locking on the car which prevents the vehicle from locking properly.

Gorey gardai were called to the scene when the woman returned to her car to discover it had been emptied.

The local woman had been in Dublin earlier in the day to do some shopping before she returned to Tesco in Gorey, before travelling across to Dunnes for her final stop.

No CCTV footage was on site to capture the heartless thieves.
