A spokesperson for the Meath Crime Prevention social media page has asked the public to keep a lookout for a wine-coloured jeep.
The Nissan X-Trail jeep has an 07 SO registration.
The spokesperson reported that the occupants of the vehicle are suspected of attempting to steal a Land Cruiser at 3 pm this afternoon.
The incident occurred in the Rossin area of Slane, near Dolly Mitchell’s pub.
The owner of the Land Cruiser confronted a male and female, who were on the foot at the time. They subsequently drove off at speed in the X-Trail towards the Drogheda direction.
Anyone with information or who has seen the vehicle recently are asked to contact the Gardaí.
