Elderly man targeted

An elderly Ballymoney man whose greyhound equipment has been stolen TWICE in as many weeks is offering a reward for information on the incidents.

77-year-old James Campbell from the Mullan Road had dog leads, coats and other items stolen from this home a fortnight ago.

Then a generator - used for heat and light for the dogs - was stolen. James’s son Graeme told the Times that his father was “in a very bad way”.

“My father is a very shy man so you can see how badly this has affected him that he actually wants to speak to the paper about this.”

Inspector David Anderson said: “A generator is thought to have been stolen along with dog coats and other pieces of equipment. Anyone with information is asked to call police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
