Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper is asking residents in the Hatmore Park and Kylemore Park areas to ensure that their homes and cars are secure following reports of creeper burglars being active in the area.
Councillor Cooper said
Several residents from Hatmore contacted me at the weekend concerned that a number of individuals were seen trying to open car doors and also back doors of houses. In one incident a sum of money was taken from a car.
It’s important to keep doors locked as creeper burglars only need a few moments to get into a house and take whatever they can get their hands on.
I know a description of those believed to have been involved in these incidents has been passed to the police and I would urge anyone else out there with information to bring it forward.
