A handbag with cash and jewlellery was removed from the car.

On the same day, in the Castletown area of Leixlip two cars were targeted.

The first happened at 7:30pm, where a silver Toyota van was broken into and tools were taken.

In the same area, a window was smashed in a silver Nissan Crew Cab and a laptop was taken.

On Thursday 17, at Aldi on the Kilcock Road, Maynooth items were taken from a blue Mazda Hatchback at approximately 12:30pm.
