Two men face oil theft charges

Two men are due in court next month in connection with a heating oil theft.

A 19-year-old man has been charged with attempted burglary, going equipped and theft, and an 18-year-old man has been charged with going equipped, attempted burglary, possession of a class B drug and theft.

Both are expected to appear at Antrim Magistrates Court on Tuesday, February 1.

A spokesman for the PSNI said the charges could be subject to review by the Public Prosecution Service.

It is understood the charges relate to an incident in Ballyclare on the evening of January 5 when heating oil was stolen from a domestic tank at a house on Rashee Road and an attempted burglary of a house at Cherryburn Road, Templepatrick, the previous evening.

Meanwhile a man, believed to be in his 20s, who was arrested during the search of a house at Glenville Park, Newtownabbey, yesterday morning was last night continuing to assist police with their inquiries.
