Between 11:15pm Thursday, March 3, and 7am Friday, March 4, a house in Beckside was broken into. The intruders searched the utility room of the property but were unable to get access into the house and left empty handed.

Around the same time a house in Eshott court was targeted by burglars. They attempted to jemmy the lock on the rear door but were unable to get inside.

Residents are also advised to ensure they lock their doors, remove all valuables from plain sight of windows and doors and make sure their homes are secure before going to bed.
