Officers from rural Louth are issuing a warning to residents over the Christmas period, following a rise in burglaries over the past few weeks.
23 reported burglaries, of which jewellery and cash have been targeted from properties where the owners have gone out, have come into the force since the beginning of September. All of which are from the Louth rural area.
We will be patrolling these areas more over the xmas period, and we are urging residents to keep an eye out on both their own security, and for any suspicious activity in their areas.
All of the incidents have seen offenders target the rear of properties in the hours of darkness and over the weekends.
If you do see anything suspicious, we are asking that residents call us on 101 immediately or ring 999 if you feel a crime is taking place.
