Cash and jewellery have been stolen from a house in Ashleigh Court in Castlederg.

Detectives are appealing for information following the burglary, which happened some time between Sunday and Wednesday.

Detective Inspector Michelle Boyd said: "I'm appealing to anyone with information, or who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1049 of 18/12/19. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

"I would take this opportunity to remind local people to take extra care to keep homes and belongings safe. If you have older relatives or neighbours help them to keep their property and belongings secure.

"Close and lock all doors and windows, consider security lights.  To a burglar, a dark house is an empty house.

"The local neighbourhood team are conducting patrols and visits in the area, and are always happy to meet with residents and groups to offer advice and assistance with crime prevention. The Strabane Rural Neighbourhood Team can be contacted in Strabane Police Station or by calling 101."
