Detectives from Reactive and Organised Crime are appealing for information in relation to three burglaries in the Causeway Coast and Glens area this month.

Detective Inspector Soren Stewart said: “Tools were stolen from outbuildings in the Gateside Road area of Coleraine including a Honda generator, a Viking chainsaw, and an Oscar hedge-trimmer. The owner noticed the items missing on February 16th.

“A new build property on the Glenshesk Road in Ballycastle was broken into and tools taken from a container including a DeWalt rotary laser level and tripod, four drills, a nail gun and a Bosch heavy duty breaker. Meanwhile a black Isuzu Utah jeep, registration ERZ 6645, was stolen from a property on the same road. Both incidents were reported to police on February 16th.

“Anyone with information about these burglaries is asked to contact us on the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively information can be passed on anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
