Gardai are warning visitors to graveyards to ensure that they do not leave valuables in their vehicles, after a handbag was stolen from the boot of a car outside a cemetery in Castledermot last Friday.

It is understood that on Friday 2 August at around 10.24am a male with dark hair and an average build damaged a car door to gain entry to the vehicle which was parked outside Coltstown Cemetery. A handbag was stolen from the boot of the car.

The culprit is understood to have fled and a black Ford Fiesta vehicle was spotted acting suspiciously in the area at the time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Gardai in Castledermot.
