Female thieves knock on doors
Two females, claiming to be selling various goods, are calling door-to-door in Terenure, with the intention of robbing houses.
In one incident last month, these women, gained entry to an elderly lady's home, and stole a sum of money from her house.
They asked her for a glass of water and for the use of her bathroom while they were in her home.
Gardai have asked residents to not let anyone into their home that they do not personally know, regardless of what they say.
Also in Terenure, garden sheds are being targeted by thieves, both during the day and night, and regardless of whether home owners are on the premises or not.
In February, homes off Harold's Cross Road had bikes stolen from their garden sheds during the early evening time. People are advised to put locks on gates.
