Car owners in Tipperary are being advised not to leave valuable items in their vehicles following seven car break-ins in the vicinity of Rathcabbin, Borrisokane and Carrigahorig in recent days.
The incidents took place overnight last Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
A handbag, wallet and other valuable items were reported stolen.
It is understood that the cars were parked outside the owners' home in most of the incidents.
Gardaí are warning that break-ins of this nature are on the increase and are appealing to motorists not to leave valuable property in unattended vehicles.
A similar incident occurred at Nenagh's Lisbunny Industrial Estate last Wednesday. Tools were reportedly stolen from a van where a person was working that morning.
