Re­duc­tion in num­ber of cars hit by thieves

Bray People - - NEWS -

AN OP­ER­A­TION to pre­vent the theft of items from cars in County Wick­low proved very suc­cess­ful last week­end.

There was only one such in­ci­dent from the start of the garda scheme last Thurs­day up un­til Sun­day. ‘ This is a dra­matic re­duc­tion,' said De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Frank Keenaghan of Bray Garda Sta­tion.

He said that the op­er­a­tion in­cluded garda pa­trol and undercover mon­i­tor­ing of cer­tain ar­eas, as well as check­points where mo­torists were handed in­for­ma­tion pam­phlets.

Det. Insp. Keenaghan said that the crime preven­tion leaflets warned peo­ple of the dan­gers of leav­ing valu­ables in their cars, as well as leav­ing ve­hi­cles un­locked.
