Gardaí in Tullamore are investigating after a car was broken into when parked up at Tullamore Town Park.

The incident occurred at around 4.30pm on Monday, September 11.

A phone and wallet were stolen from the vehicle and gardaí are now looking into the matter.

The couple at the centre of the theft have taken to social media to appeal for the return of the phone.
