Gardaí in Wicklow are investigating the theft of two high-powered sports cars from a house in the early hours of Tuseday morning, writes William O'Toole.
The incident happened after the house in Dunlavin was broken into as the owners slept.
It is understood that the culprits gained access to the house via the rear of the property and stole the keys from the kitchen.
The two cars that were taken were a Black Audi A6 Sline and a Black BMW 320Msport
The Black BMW is a particularly distinctive car and investigating gardaí believe it will be easily spotted.
Its features include twin power-flow exhaust, 330 rear diffuser, 19″ CSL wheels, rear privacy glass, and a boot lip spoiler and its owners describe it as ‘one of a kind’.
