PSNI police car

Police are appealing for information and witnesses following two separate reports of burglaries at outhouses in Broughshane on Monday, 13th May.


Officers received the first report just before 6.30am yesterday morning and a second report an hour later around 7.30am, that garden sheds had been broken into in the Ballycloghan Road area of the village.



Chief Inspector Boyd said:


“When officers attended, it appeared two sheds of neighbouring properties had been targeted in the vicinity, with the same force used to gain entry to both.


“It also looks like a vehicle was driven into the field beside where the properties are located and a wheelbarrow was used to move garden tools, which were of significant value to the owners from both properties.



"Our investigation has begun and we would appeal to anyone who was in the area between 12am and 6am on Monday morning, and noticed anything out of the ordinary to make contact with us on 101, quoting reference 231 13/05/24.


“We would be especially keen to hear from anyone who may have CCTV or doorbell footage of the area that we could review, to get in touch.



“Alternatively, you can submit a report online using the non-emergency reporting form via www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/ and you can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at http://crimestoppers-uk.org/ .


“Please let this be a reminder to those who use sheds to store valuable items, make sure your shed is locked and secure at all times even in the brighter evenings, in order to prevent this type of crime.”
