Over 500 thefts from vehicles have been reported across the Mayo Garda division over the past four years.

New figures from An Garda Siochana show that, nationally, over €30 million euro worth of items have been stolen from 46,582 vehicles since the start of 2016 - including 504 in Mayo, 407 in Roscommon / Longford, 495 in Sligo / Leitrim and over 1200 in the Galway Garda division.

Gardai have launched their "Park Smart" appeal, and are urging owners of cars, vans and other vehicles to ensure they're locked, no matter where they're parked, and not to store valuables in their vehicle if possible - or if they need to so do, keep them out of sight.
