Five burglaries in east Belfast earlier this week may be linked, police have said.

The PSNI said it had received reports of four burglaries in Cabin Hill Park, and another at an address in the Upper Newtownards Road.

Detective Sergeant Patrick Conlan said: "A number of power tools were reported stolen from sheds including petrol hedge cutters, a Ryobi drill, a tool box and two red plastic containers."

He said the burglaries are reported to have occurred between 5.30pm on Monday and 12.50pm on Tuesday.

He added: "We believe these may be linked.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in these areas and saw any suspicious activity, or who is offered items similar to those reported stolen, for sale in suspicious circumstances to call us straight away.

"Get in touch with detectives at Musgrave on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 432 of 30/04/19."
