Appeal for information after attempted burglary at bakery in Ballymena
A Ballymena business owner has appealed for information after discovering damage caused by an attempted break-in at their Broughshane Street bakery shop on Friday morning, 29 July.
Commenting on social media, the owner of the Busy Bean Bakery said:
“Unfortunately someone tried to break into my bakery last night. If any other business in Broughshane Street has security cameras, could they check if cameras picked up anything. Police have been notified.”
It is the third attempted burglary this week in Ballymena town centre. On Monday morning, thieves had attempted to break into Diamond’s Newsagents, also on Broughshane Street, and at Caldwell’s Jewellers on Church Street.
A spokesperson for the Police Service of Northern Ireland commented:
“Police received a report of criminal damage caused to premises in the Broughshane Street area of Ballymena shortly before 8.35am today, Friday 29 July.
“It was reported that sometime overnight, someone had attempted to open a window to gain entry to the building, subsequently causing damage to the glass panel.
“Enquiries into this incident are ongoing, and police in Ballymena are appealing for anyone who was in the area and witnessed any suspicious activity to contact them on 101, and quote reference number 377 of 29/07/22.”
