Gardaí are appealing to three men who stole mirrors in Dunfanaghy and Portnablagh to come forward before their images are shared online.
The men were caught on CCTV stealing two convex mirrors from roadsides in north Donegal last weekend.
Gardaí have revealed that they have ‘excellent’ footage of the incident and expect to be knocking on the suspects’ doors very soon. The men are being given the chance to come forward to a garda station before this happens.
“If we don’t get a resolution to this, the option is open to us to maybe post these images of these guys on social media and that will probably happen next week,” said Garda Niall Maguire.
The thefts occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning, August 15th, between 4.30am and 5am.
Two separate convex mirrors were stolen. These mirrors are used to allow drivers to see wider views of roads when pulling out of junctions.
One mirror was stolen in Dunfanaghy village, which has since been recovered, and another was taken on the main N56 road at Portnablagh.
Garda say three males were observed pulling up to the mirror in a small car. They were observed pulling, shaking and ripping the sign from its foundations. The men then “chucked it in the car, had a good laugh and drove off back towards Dunfanaghy”.
“We do have good CCTV, I do expect this one to be solved, so we are appealing to the three lads who took this, we will be knocking on your door, so it may be handier if you call in and speak to us in Dunfanaghy garda station and we will try and get something sorted,” Gda Maguire said.
Anybody who knows the whereabouts of the mirror, please contact gardaí in Milford on +353 74 9153067
