Gardai have launched an investigation after a patrol car was targeted on Arranmore Island.

A spokesman for the Garda press office confirmed that three hubcaps were taken off the car but later found nearby and replaced.

The incident happened on August 18th.

The island does not have a full-time Garda presence but does receive patrols, especially over the summer months, by Gardai from the mainland.
