Burglars smashed windows to gain entry to houses in Antrim and Newtownabbey where they stole jewellery.

The series of burglaries took place on Saturday, April 9.

Two reports were made in the Bush Manor and Oakdale Manor area of Antrim, with a third relating to the Ballyduff Road area of Newtownabbey.

Rear patio doors were smashed at both of the houses in Antrim and entry was gained while the occupants were out.
