Pictured: Designer children's clothes and GHD products stolen in spate of Ballymoney burglaries

A number of items including boxed GHD hair appliances and a large number of children's designer clothes have been stolen following three burglaries in Ballymoney.

Detectives in Coleraine received a report of a burglary at The Old Town Bank premises in Church Street of the town shortly after 9pm on Tuesday.

While in attendance, burglaries of another two businesses within the same premises were reported.

A number of items were reported stolen in all three burglaries including boxed GHD hair appliances and a large amount of designer children's clothes, namely FRUGI, TUTTO PICCOLO, TUC TUC, KITE AND GRASSMEN.

It's thought the cost of the thefts go into the thousands. The clothes shop owner said the items were distinctive and appealed for anyone who may come across the items to contact police.

Detective Sergeant Gallagher said: "There was also an amount of premature baby clothing stolen.

"Substantial damage was also caused to all three premises.

"We believe these burglaries occurred sometime between 6pm on Monday, 8th January and 9am on Tuesday 9th January, and we believe they are linked.

"I am appealing to anyone who has information about any of these incidents, or who is offered for sale any of the items reported stolen in suspicious circumstances, to contact Detectives at Coleraine Criminal Investigation Branch on 101, quoting reference number 245 of 09/01/18.

"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."
