Burglars ransack house and steal car

Opportunistic thieves ransacked a house before making off with the family car during a robbery in Art McCooey Park, Glassdrummond on Saturday.

The incident occurred sometime between 9.30am and 10pm and was discovered when the owners returned home to find the kitchen window at the rear of their property smashed.  The intruders ransacked a bedroom and stole a set of car keys before making off with the vehicle.

It’s believed the culprits may have been travelling in a blue Audi A4.

Police are investigating and have appealed for witnesses.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Police would appeal to anyone who saw a Blue Audi A4 being driven by possibly two males in the area.  Possibly one male wearing a blue hooded top with a mask and wearing orange gloves.

“We ask the community for help on this matter. Please get in touch with police by ringing 101 quoting Serial 1937 20/07/19 or to get in touch with Crimestoppers.”
