DETECTIVES are appealing for information following a burglary at a Castlederg home, where items including jewellery of sentimental value, were stolen.
It is believed entry was forced to the house, located at the Drumquin Road area of Castlederg, at some stage between 1.30pm and 11pm on Friday.
The owners returned home to find a sum of money and various items of jewellery, of sentimental value, had been taken.
Detective Sergeant Donnell said that the theft had been a ‘particularly upsetting experience’ for the occupants.
“I am appealing to anyone with information, or who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area around that time, to contact us,” he said.
“ In particular, did you see any cars, or happen to capture any dash cam footage? Please get in touch on 101, quoting reference number 2181 of 29/11/19.”
‘Stay safe this Christmas’
Detective Sergeant Donnell continued, “With the darker nights and Christmas fast approaching, I’m keen to stress that crime prevention advice is readily available to everyone. For detailed advice on home security contact your local Crime Prevention Officer on the non-emergency number 101, and in an emergency always call 999.
“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.”
