Cllr. McGinley said: “In recent weeks residents have expressed concern at the number of attempted and actual burglaries in the Foyle Springs area of the city. It appears as though the criminals involved are looking in particular for doors and windows which are left open.
Whilst there is no excuse for the actions of those involved in these crimes I would urge residents to take every precaution they can to ensure that these criminals are denied the opportunity to access their properties and steal their belongings. I will continue to make representations to the PSNI to provide increased resources to combat this criminal behaviour.
I would also highlight to residents the home security equipment and advice which is available on request and to make contact with me if you wish to avail of this service.”
