A quantity of cigarettes were stolen during a burglary in Co Down in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Police are investigating the incident at a service  station on the Saintfield Road, Ballygowan.

Detective Sergeant Lauren Edwards said: “Shortly after midnight, the roller shutter door and front door to the premises were forced and entry gained, with a quantity of cigarettes then stolen. Our enquiries are at an early stage but we believe at this time that at least two men were involved in the burglary and that they made off from the scene in a car.”

“I would ask anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or who has any information which could assist with our enquires to contact detectives in Bangor on 101 quoting reference number 34 11/12/18. Alternatively, 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.”
