Crime Prevention Officer for the Tipperary Garda Division, Sergeant Tom O’Dwyer said “I would like to remind everyone to never leave property in your car if possible and ensure your car is locked and alarmed. When we leave items like cash, credit cards, jewellery and electronics on display in our cars, they are clear targets for criminals.
