Thieves stole a white BMW 1 series car in Letterkenny and completely destroyed it by torching it later that night.
The car is being described as 'distinctive' by gardaí - being a coupe-style car.
The incident occurred on Saturday night, last between 10.20pm on Saturday night and 12.20am on Sunday morning.
The car which was taken from the Gleann Rua estate was later found torched in the Killylastin area.
Gardaí have appealed for anybody who may have seen this car or may have dashcam footage of the car on the night in question to contact them at Letterkenny Garda Station on 074 91 67100.
