Detectives investigate burglary in Whitehead and two other possible linked incidents


Detectives appealing for witnesses and information about a burglary at a house in Whitehead in Co Antrim, are investigating a possible link with two other reported incidents in the area.


Detective Inspector Lenaghan said:


“A report was received yesterday (Monday 9th August) that a two generators, a strimmer, and a lawnmower had been stolen from an address at Port Davey Road.


“It’s believed that the items were taken at some stage between 11pm on Sunday 8th August, and 8.30am yesterday. Damage was also caused to a security light.


“Enquiries are ongoing, and detectives are investigating a possible link with two other reported incidents.


“Shortly before 4.25am yesterday, a report was received of an attempted break in at a property at Mounthill Crescent in Larne.


“Two people dressed in black were seen trying to gain entry to a shed, but made off empty-handed when disturbed by the occupant.


“Just over four hours later, it was reported that fencing to the rear of a house at Gleno Village in Larne had been cut. The occupant believed that entry had been gained to stables at the property, but nothing was damaged or taken.”


Detective Inspector Lenaghan said that enquiries into all three incidents were ongoing, and detectives are appealing to anyone who may have any information which could assist, or who witnessed any suspicious activity, to call 101, and quote reference number 368 of 09/08/21.
