Slieve Gullion Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Larkin has called on visitors to our forest parks not to leave valuables in their cars.
Encouraging vigilance the local Councillor said,
“On Saturday a car parked on the Mountain Road Dromintee was broken into and a sum of money stolen along with personal items. Apart from the damage to the car the loss of the stolen items is a substantial shock to the owners.
Many residents and visitors enjoy the beauty and space of our forest parks daily. During the pandemic this has been a vital resource for the communities of our district. However we all must be aware that criminals operate in any area. These types of crime are normally opportunistic in nature. I would appeal to everyone who park their car, before setting of on a walk or run, please do not leave anything of value behind. A little vigilance can save the day.”
