5 jeeps taken

This is the fifth Toyota Land Cruiser to be stolen in recent weeks, following thefts in counties Cork, Tipperary, Waterford and Meath.

One of the stolen vehicles was recently recovered by Gardai in Meath.

The silver vehicle, with a registration bearing “07-MH” was located in Lismullen, Navan at 7.45pm on Tuesday evening, August 28, a Garda spokesperson said.

The jeep was reportedly stolen from a field near Garlow Cross in Co. Meath earlier that day, at approximately 3:00pm.

The Land Cruiser was apparently stolen as the owner was “harvesting” in the field.

The jeep was stolen at approximately 11:15am on Saturday morning, August 18. That evening, the 4×4 was recorded on a camera in Northern Ireland at around 6.30pm.
