Sinn Féin representative Hayleigh Fleming has issued an alert to people living in the Hazelbank area of the city after a number of reported walk in burglaries and attempted burglaries in the Inch View area.
Hayleigh Fleming said “This is a very worrying development and it is important to get this warning out to residents in the area about what has been going on.
“I have received very worrying reports of a number of walk in burglaries and attempted burglaries in the Inch View area. It must be a very frightening experience to find that someone has been your house. In most cases the criminals involved are looking for any cash or small electrical good that they can sell on
“It’s important that residents are vigilant, look out for their neighbours and report any suspicious characters hanging about to the PSNI or local representatives. Don’t make it easy for the criminals.
