A property marking system part developed in Donegal is one of the prevention measures being highlighted by gardai this week as part of Operation Thor, aimed at reducing cross border crime.
This week, home owners in Donegal are being warned to be extra vigilant when it comes to protecting and storing gardening machinery.
Gardai say there's been a significant increase in the amount of such equipment being stolen, particularly as it can be easily moved and sold on for cash.
Donegal's Crime Prevention Officer is Sgt. Paul Wallace..............
