Skerries: Robberies on the rise in 2015
Home burglaries have risen in Skerries since the New Year.
While there had been a spate of break-ins before Christmas, residents are reporting an increase in incidents in the last month, higher than at the end of 2014.
Thieves are targeting garden sheds for bikes, houses and cars.
Incidents have been reported in the north and south ends of the town centre with a van reported driving around suspiciously, during the month of March.
It is understood not to be an organised gang but more opportunistic criminals, stealing goods left on visible display.
