Land Cruiser stolen from field in Co. Meath

A silver Toyota Land Cruiser was reportedly stolen from a field in Co. Meath in recent days, according to a post on the Meath Crime Prevention Facebook page.

It is understood that members of An Garda Siochana are investigating the theft – which occurred near Garlow Cross on Tuesday (August 28) afternoon.

The 2007 4×4 – with a Meath registration – was reportedly stolen at 3:00pm, the social media post added.

It is believed that the Land Cruiser was stolen as the owner was “harvesting” in the field.

Gardai outlined that the vehicle was driven off in the direction of Navan after it was taken from the field.

Anyone with information that may lead to the recovery of the vehicle is asked to contact Navan Garda Station on: 046-9079930.
