Garda warning to tradesmen

Gardai are warning tradesmen who store their tools and work materials in their vans to remove them when not occupied.

There has been a sharp rise in thefts from vans in recent weeks throughout the county.

Thefts of work tools have been reported in Wicklow town, Rathnew, Rathdrum, Aughrim and Knockananna.

Garda are still keen to speak with anyone who may have seen the Skoda Octavia which was linked with a number of thefts last week.

The most recent theft has been reported on the Main Street in Rathdrum on Sunday evening where a work van had the contents taken.
