Sinn Féin Councillor Christopher Jackson has urged residents in the Waterside area to be on alert after a number of homes there were burgled
Councillor Christopher Jackson said
“Over the past week there have been a number of break- ins at homes in the Waterside area .Thieves have also targeted bikes and garden tools left outside.
I have spoken to one local resident who has been left badly shaken after finding a number of people acting suspiciously outside her home . I would urge anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation or hears, sees anything suspicious outside their home to call the police straight away.
“Thieves have no respect for you or your property; helping to catch them is the best way of safeguarding your own property and your neighbours.
I would also appeal to anyone with information or who may have seen anything in their area to pass this to the PSNI. People like this cannot be allowed to prey on our community.
