With Christmas approaching, Gardai are reminding shoppers not to leave presents and other valuable items on display in parked and unattended vehicles.
If they must store property in their vehicle, it should be placed in the boot or glove box where it is out of view.

Care should also be taken over the Christmas period, when visiting the grave of a loved one, as criminals continue to target cars parked at graveyards for handbags and personal items on display.
