Overnight thefts in Knockaduff and Isle Road areas – Police appeal for information

Police are appealing for information following several reports of thefts in the Coleraine area last night, Friday 24th February.

Inspector Brogan said: “We received a report that sometime overnight access someone or persons had gained to a property in the Knockaduff Road area took a scrambler motorbike and helmets.

“A further report was received that a vehicle had been broken into at a second property on the Knockaduff Road and a number of tools had been taken.

“A third report was received that sometime after 11.15pm last night, entry had been gained to a property in the Isle Road area of Macosquin and three sets of keys had been taken from inside.

“Whilst we will continue to conduct proactive patrols, respond to reports of suspicious activity and deliver crime prevention, I would encourage everyone to take precautions with their home and property where possible.

“Keep valuables out of view, this applies to your car too – don’t leave anything in view that will attract thieves.

“Hide all keys out of sight and away from your front door. To avoid keyless car theft, keep keys in a Faraday Bag to prevent your signal being intercepted and your vehicle stolen.

“Having an active house alarm can deter thieves. Placing cameras by entry points is also a good idea, as this will record any unusual movement outside.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed anyone suspicious in either area or to anyone with CCTV or other footage that could assist with enquiries to contact police on 101 quoting reference 268 of 23/02/24.”
