COMMUNITIES in Milford, Ramelton, Rathmullan, Fanad and the surrounding areas are being warned that criminal gangs with a record for burglaries are in the area today.
It’s understood Gardai have stepped up patrols in these areas as a result of reported suspicious activity this morning.
Several men in two white vans who have been suspected of previous robberies have been spotted in the area.
The men are likely to approach home owners with excuses about why they are in the area, may pretend to be seeking directions or ask to use toilets.
Communities are urged to check on relatives and elderly neighbours.
The men should not be approached.
The Milford Garda station can be contacted on 074 91 53114.
