Gardaí issue advice on crime prevention

Recently a number of business people in the west of Ireland have had sums of money stolen from their premises by people using distraction techniques. These crimes usually happen at rural shops, post offices, etc. The method used is that a group of foreign nationals, usually six or seven and mixed in gender, enter a rural business. Sometimes they have children with them. Some of the group will engage the staff in conversation about different products on sale while one of the gang, usually a female, slips into the office or private part of the building. This individual will then search for cash and steal whatever is found and in most cases the amount is substantial.
