#BrayHarbour - Boat owners in Bray are urged to be vigilant after a number of engines were stolen from boats in the harbour last month.
The Wicklow Times reports that a number of boats moored in the harbour were apparently targeted by thieves who struck in the early hours of Monday 22 August.
A number of engines were taken in the brazen raid, as well as radio and GPS equipment.
"We know it happened at low tide when they would have had easy access," said Bray Sailing Club Commodore Mark Henderson.
"Unfortunately all our CCTV could pick up was flashlights as we know the robberies took place between 2 and 3am ... but it was too dark to make out faces."
Anyone in the market for a secondhand engine has been asked to check where it came from, and report any suspicions to the relevant authorities.
