Elderly woman’s home near Kells burgled while she ‘nipped out to the shops’

A BURGLAR struck at the home of an elderly woman on the Carncome Road near Kells when she ‘nipped out to the shops’.

The PSNI Antrim Facebook page said: ‘Folks, I posted yesterday about an attempted burglary at the home of an elderly couple in Newtownabbey on Friday.

‘Unfortunately, on the same day, an elderly female on the Carncome Road, just outside Kells, had her home burgled.

‘Although nothing was taken, you can imagine how she feels, having had unknown people in her house, looking through her possessions while she had nipped out to the shops.

‘If you were in the area on Friday, late morning/early afternoon, and you saw something out of place, unknown persons, slow moving vehicles etc, please give Antrim Detectives a call to discuss what you saw.

‘You can ring us on 101 and ask for Antrim CID office or if you’d rather remain anonymous you can call Crimestopoers on 0800 555111. The reference for this incident is 924 of 19th July.

‘While we do everything we can to solve these crimes, whether through forensics and fingerprints, CCTV enquiries, speaking with neighbours and other bits and pieces, the help of the public can be invaluable in catching offenders and bringing them to court.’
