Garda warning as criminals stealing car parts, target Kerry vehicles

Thieves operating in Kerry are stealing car parts from people’s vehicles, and selling them on, either online or privately. That’s according to Gardai in Tralee, who’ve noticed a new trend, whereby criminals are breaking in to cars parked outside people’s homes, and stealing specific parts. In the most recent incident, four alloy wheels were taken from a Volkwagen Golf in Duagh. Gardai have asked anyone who noticed anything suspicious in the Duagh area on the morning of February 17, to contact Listowel Gardai. GardaElsewhere, the public’s help is also being sought following breaks-in to homes in Ballybunion and Knocknagoshel. Nothing was taken from the house at Church Road, Ballybunion, but jewelery and a sum of money was taken from the home at Kilmanihan West, Knocknagoshel on February 15th. Anyone with information on either burglary, is asked to contact their local Garda station.
