Police urge Roddens folk: ‘Check your property and report burglaries’


Roddens residents have been urged to check on property and report and suspected burglaries to Larne police.

Detectives are investigating a number of garage burglaries which took place at homes in the Roddens in the early hours of February 17.

Det Chief Insp Catherine Magee explained: “Since the spate of crimes last week we have searched two houses and arrested two men, with both since released on bail pending further enquiries.

“A number of items were recovered by police during the operation, but some stolen items are still outstanding. I would ask that people living in the Roddens area check their garages and report any suspected burglaries to Larne detectives on the non-emergency number 101.”

The chief inspector added: “Police are now looking for a child’s Electric Volt scooter, a gents Black and White Reebok bicycle, hedge trimmers (Challenge Extreme brand), a red-and-white minimoto with FILA racing stickers on it, and a clear front screen which is cracked. If you come across any of these items or are offered them for sale in suspicious circumstances, please call the non-emergency 101 number.”
