Gang caught on CCTV as they target Tallaght tradesmen in spate of robberies

A spate of robberies targeting vehicles owned by tradesmen in the Russell Square area of Tallaght have been highlighted recently with CCTV footage showing a gang stealing at least €2,700 worth of tools from one jeep in less than a minute.

Another tradesman targeted in the same estate had €1,000 worth of tools stolen, while the cost to replace and enhance the broken locks on the vehicle could cost up to €1,000.

In the early hours of last Tuesday morning at least three vehicles were targeted in Russell Square, with the thieves taking power tools and other items.

One of the tradesmen targeted has shared CCTV footage that shows the thieves gaining entry to his vehicle on Russell Crescent, load up their car with tools and leave in a short period of time.

Gardai confirmed to Echo.ie that they are investigating at least one incident in the area on the night, and urged others who have been targeted to come forward and make a report.
