Appeal for information after burglary at home of elderly lady in her 80s in Antrim

Detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following the report of a burglary at a property in the Ballymena Road area of Antrim last night, Saturday November 27th.

A police spokesperson said:

“It was reported at approximately 6.50pm that the female victim – who is in their 80s, had went upstairs to close their bedroom window.

“As the victim was leaving the bedroom she observed a man hiding behind the bedroom door. When challenged he proceeded to walk down the stairs and made his escape.

“The victim has since discovered that several rings, including a gold wedding band, an engagement ring and an eternity ring are missing from her jewellery box.

“This has been an extremely distressing ordeal for the victim and our enquiries are continuing. We are appealing for anyone with information who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in and around this property last night to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference number 1647 27/11/21.”
