Gardai show lost goods on website

SUPERINTENDENT Martin Fitzgerald and Garda Derek Cullen display some of the lost or stolen property placed online by gardai.

In the new innovative pilot scheme, property recovered by gardai in Dublin has been placed on a dedicated garda Flickr page.

The force is now using the popularity of social networking sites to reunite people with their lost property.

Superintendent Martin Fitzgerald, Dun Laoghaire, said: "The scheme has already seen very positive results and it won't be long until similar schemes are rolled out across the country."
