A large quantity of hats and jackets intended for stewards and volunteers for this weekend's Dublin Marathon have been stolen from a van in Dublin.

The items were taken from the van, which was parked outside a house at Sutton Park in Sutton, sometime between Saturday and Monday.

The clothing is not for general sale to the public.

Gardaí say anyone offered the merchandise or anyone who can help in locating the property is asked to contact their local garda station.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Raheny Garda Station on 01 6664300, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any garda station.
