Residents' alert on vehicle thefts

RESIDENTS in Dun Laoghaire have been alerted to a number of car thefts in the area in recent weeks.

In Ardmore Park two vehicles were stolen from the same house.

A car and an SUV were taken from the property on the same night.

The SUV was later recovered though many changes had been made to it by the thieves.

Another car was stolen from a nearby estate around the same period.

"There is a very active community in the area, with several residents associations," said a source.

"It's a pity that these things are still happening."
