Vigilant shopping was the theme of the leaflets given out by Tallaght Sinn Fein last Saturday 27th July, while the day was still sunny, and the thunder storms had yet to come. There was a good reception from shoppers and thanks to team, pictured above for coming out on the day.
The leaflet tells how, “There has been a spate of aggravated purse snatchings in car parks within shopping complexes, shoppers at Kilnamanagh S.C. have been victims of this terrifying crime. Cllr Máire Devine has been in discussions with the Management and in particular the anchor tenant- Dunnes Stores. It has been decided that a HI-VIS Security Guard will patrol the car park to improve shoppers safety. This is welcomed and much appreciated -it will reassure shoppers while also deterring thieves.”
“The Gardaí are following positive lines of enquiries and believe this is an organised gang who are attacking vulnerable shoppers- in the main women and frazzled mothers distracted by energetic tots.”
