A car or bike is being stolen every three hours in Dublin, with teen gangs being blamed for the spike in thefts.

The Herald reports one teenager is suspected of stealing up to 20 vehicles within a week earlier this month.

More than 450 bikes and cars were robbed in the capital in the first eight weeks of the year.

That's an almost 20 per cent increase in the theft rate when compared to the same time last year.

"Out of control" teen robbery gangs are believed to be behind the crime wave according to the paper, which says offenders are often posting their crimes on social media.
