‘No crimes noted’ after police called about youths ‘acting suspiciously’ in area of Ballymena where there were six break-ins in one weekend


RESIDENTS in a part of Ballymena where there were six burglaries two weekends ago contacted police about two youths ‘acting suspiciously’ in the general Leighinmohr area in recent days.

A PSNI spokesman told ‘Ballymena Daily’: “Police received a report of two youths acting suspiciously in the Tullymore Park area of Ballymena.

“Officers attended, spoke to the youths, and no crimes were noted.”

It is understood the call-out was on Tuesday.

Recently six homes were hit in a burglary blitz in that area.

Detectives were investigating after reports of a number of burglaries at residential premises between Friday 12th and Sunday 14th October.

Detective Sergeant Leighanne Miller said recently: “Over the course of the weekend we received reports of burglaries at six houses in the Leighinmohr area of Ballymena.

“On each occasion a window was smashed to the rear of the house to gain entry and each burglary took place in the evening time. We believe all the incidents to be linked and our enquiries are continuing.

“I would appeal to anyone with any information or who witnessed anything suspicious in the area at the time of the burglaries to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference number 1282 12/10/18.

“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.”
