Warning over opportunist thefts-Kelly

Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has warned residents in the Bogside and Creggan to be on alert following a number of opportunist thefts in the area over the past week.COLLY

Councillor Kelly said

“Sadly we always see a rise in these types of crime over the summer months .In the past week i am aware of gardening tools being stolen from outside a home in the Bogside and an iphone 5 was stolen from a workers van in Creggan.

In both incidents the thefts took place very quickly and were discovered within minutes but the culprits were gone.

It’s a sad state of affairs that we have to leave people to watch tools or lock a door every time we step out for a few minutes.The iphone is useless to the person who stole it because its  locked but it has recent family holiday photos on it  so if anyone finds it abandoned i would appeal for them  to contact me.
