Three Dublin companies were all broken into a small city in early November, and CCTV images released have marked the exact moment that a thief hits a window at a plant and seems to steal objects from the inside.
The pictures, given to Lovin Dublin by RIBA Stillorgan, show the premises with broken glass and shop doors crushed.
The incident occurred in Stepaside and the plants damaged were: the fruit shop "Simply Veg," a local butcher called Fleming's and RIBA Stillorgan's own business, Borza.
The companies in Stepaside have been severely affected by theft and crime injuries this year.
Quattro Woodfire Pizza – launching its restaurant on Wednesday night – was robbed in May and both pharmacies in the village have recently been robbed.
Garda came to the stage as fast as they could, with reports saying it took about an hour.
Currently, the Stepaside Garda Station stops, although a report released last year by the Garda Commissioner stated that the station would open again.
