Thieves plunder four homes in north Belfast in one night
Burglars raided four homes in a single evening north Belfast while residents were at home, police have revealed.
It was reported that between 7pm and 7.30pm on Thursday evening, four addresses in Old Throne Park, Belfast and an address in Rogan Manor were entered while people were at home.
