An investigation into a case of alleged criminal damage involving number of cars in Longford town at the weekend is underway

Gardaí have launched an investigation after several cars were targeted by vandals in Longford town at the weekend.

As many as six cars had their passenger windows smashed in during an incident outside a business premises along the Athlone Road area sometime between last Friday night and the early hours of Saturday morning.
