TEXT ALERT FROM AN GARDA SÍOCHÁNA

Bicycle thefts on the increase over the last three months.

Even when your bike is in your garden shed, please lock it to something else.

 

Locking your bike to heavy items such as lawnmower or garden tools

makes it harder to steal.

 

Theft of children’s bikes after Christmas is heartbreaking.
