Bray People - - NEWS -

GAR­DAI IN County Wicklow are warn­ing res­i­dents to be ex­tra care­ful at this time of year as thieves tar­get homes.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Frank Keeneghan of Bray Garda Sta­tion ex­plained that this time last year saw a large spike in home break-ins.

‘ There are usu­ally valu­able be­long­ings in the home af­ter Christ­mas,' ex­plained Det. Insp. Keeneghan.

He said that ex­ten­sive re­sources were used to tackle such crimes through­out the year.

‘Peo­ple can help the gar­dai in a num­ber of ways,' he said.

Res­i­dents can con­tact gar­dai at any time if they no­tice any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity in their area.

The most likely times are lunchtime and be­tween 6 p.m. and 7.30 p.m.

Peo­ple are urged to en­sure that all doors and win­dows are locked, alarms set and a light left on if you are leav­ing the house.

If you no­tice any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity in your area, call Bray Garda Sta­tion on (01) 6665300.
