The burglaries took place in the Millhouse Court, Glencraig and Kintyre areas.

PSNI detectives are appealing for witnesses following a number of burglaries at residential properties in the Antrim area on Friday.

It was reported that sometime between 8am and 7pm entry was forced to a property in the Millhouse Court area. A number of rooms were searched but nothing was stolen during the incident.

Then it was reported that sometime between 5.30pm and 8pm a house in the Glencraig area had been entered and a number of rooms searched. It is not believed that anything was stolen during the incident.

Meanwhile shortly before 7.50pm the occupant of a house in the Kintyre area returned home and disturbed three men in his property. The males made off when challenged by the homeowner. A watch was stolen during the incident.

The men are described as being aged in their late teens or early 20’s and had scarves covering their faces.
