The burgundy Opel Astra, registration AKZ 2277, was taken from the Rossnagalliagh area between 4.ooam and 6.30am on Saturday and was later involved in a collision in the Raphoe area and was recovered by Gardai.
It’s understood Gardaí are linking the car to the theft of TVs from a farmer’s home in the Raphoe area at the weekend.
A wing mirror from the car was found in the farmyard after the raid.
The investigating PSNI officer investigating the car’s theft is keen to speak to anyone who saw the car that day.
