A burglary victim has been left badly shaken after four masked men broke into a home in Newtownards.

The burglary happened at a house in the Talbot Street area of the town on Monday night.

Detective Constable Armstrong said: “We received a report that four masked men entered the property at around 10.20pm on Monday.  They rummaged through the house and left with a sum of money.

“It’s reported that the men all wore dark clothing and balaclavas.

"The occupant, while physically unharmed, was understandably left badly shaken.

“It is believed that the four subsequently headed in the direction of William Street Court, and got into a dark coloured hatchback-type vehicle.

“We are appealing to anyone with information, or who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area, to contact detectives on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1534 of 20/05/19.

“Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
