Cash stolen in burglaries in Dungannon area


Cash was taken during three burglaries in the Dungannon area on Friday and Saturday.

Police are urging homeowners to secure their properties following a series of burglaries in the Dungannon area over the weekend.

On Friday night a house in the Ballynorthland Demesne area was broken into and a sum of money was taken, an attempt was also made to steal a television set.

Sometime between 11am and 4pm on Saturday burglars entered a house in the Jockey Lane area of Moy and stole cash while at around the same time money was taken from a house in Victoria Park area of Dungannon.

Detective Inspector Will Tate said: “We would appeal to all householders to take steps to protect their homes. Please remember to close and lock windows and doors at night or when the house is unoccupied to reduce the chances of your home being targeted by criminals and opportunist thieves.

“We are continually working to raise awareness of burglaries and whilst police can conduct patrols, respond to reports of suspicious activity and deliver crime prevention, members of the public can play their part in taking proper precautions to protect their home and property. If your doors aren't secure, neither is your home so please remember to "Close It, Lock It and Check It"."

He added: “I would appeal for anyone who notices suspicious activity in their neighbourhood to call police immediately as this could prevent someone from becoming a victim of crime. Further practical crime prevention advice is always available from your local Crime Prevention Officer on the non-emergency number 101.”
