7-year-old Letterkenny girls €1,800 Christmas present stolen

Garda are investigating after a buggy a young Letterkenny girl got as a present for Christmas was stolen.

Thieves took the red Challenger buggy from the back garden of the home of seven-year-old Jessica Peoples in Letterkenny, on Sunday night.

The red Challenger buggy, which was a Christmas present for 7-year-old Jessica Peoples, was stolen on Sunday night.

The girls father, Michael, has offered a cash reward for information that might lead to the return of the buggy, which is worth €1,800.

Designed for off-road sport, the buggy can reach speeds of up to 25mph.

Thieves gained entry to the back garden of the Peoples' home, at Lismonaghan in Letterkenny. They took the buggy and an 8x4 builders' steel trailer, on which it was mounted.

Mr Peoples estimates that it would have taken at least two men to remove the trailer and buggy from the back as his jeep was blocking the entrance.

Gardai are viewing CCTV footage of the area in a bid to track down the thieves.
