Police in Ballymena, investigating a report of retail theft in the Fairhill Lane area of the town, have arrested two girls aged 11 and 13-years-old, and a 19 year-old woman.

The arrests follow three separate reports of theft from multiple retail premises on Tuesday 6th February, where a number of cosmetic items had been stolen.

Subsequent enquiries by colleagues from Ballymena's Local Policing Team, resulted in the search of a property in the Sandown Park area, where three were arrested.

During the house search, a number of other items were seized including further cosmetic items and designer clothing, which also appeared to have been stolen.

The value of items retrieved amounted to over £1000, and will be returned to each of the stores where they were taken from. All three arrested have since been street bailed, pending further enquiries.
