Phone shop owners in Clare are being urged to stay on high alert, after similar businesses in neighbouring counties have been targeted by thieves using extraordinary tactics.

Criminals have rammed a car through the front of shops, and using military-like precision have taken thousands of euro worth of phones in under three minutes.

Shops in Limerick and Galway, as well as in Roscommon and Liffey Valley have been targeted.


Clare’s Crime Prevention Officer, Sergeant Tríona O’Rourke has this advice for shop owners here.
