THERE were fresh warnings to motorists to be vigilant about leaving valuables in vehicles after another spate of break ins to cars across the area over the last week.
The latest, on Sunday morning, was reported at Tudor grove, where the owner discovered the window of her car smashed after it had been parked overnight outside her home.
Later on Sunday, gardai received reports of a break in to a vehicle parked at Blackgate, Ravensdale. The owner had parked up sometime around 4pm, and had gone for a walk. He returned to find the car broken into, and a heart monitor stolen from inside the vehicle, along with a small quantity of cash.
