They are warning young people to be vigilant and never give their phone to someone they don’t know. Gardaí are advising them to not take them out in isolated areas and not to go down town on their own and stay with friends.

They also encourage young people to have tracking apps on the phone and make sure it’s PIN-locked to make it as awkward as possible for thieves.
