Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has warned residents in Creggan to be on the alert following a number of attempted break-ins in the Ballymagowan development.
Councillor Kelly said “I am aware of at least three attempted break-ins in the Ballymagowan development over the past two weeks.
Residents I have spoken to are worried that their home could be next to be targeted by these criminals.
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 would urge anyone who sees anything suspicious in the area to alert their neighbours and the police.
