Police encourage house owner vigilance after Rostrevor break-ins
Detectives in the Newry and Mourne are reminding residents to take steps to secure their property following two incidents in the Rostrevor area. In the first incident entry was gained to a house in the Rosses Quay area some time overnight between Sunday, 27th November and Monday, 28th November. Car keys and a white Renault Kango van were subsequently taken. Two house telephones, a sum of cash and two rings – an 18ct yellow gold, seven stone diamond eternity ring and an 18ct yellow gold ring with a 2ct ruby stone surrounded by five smaller diamonds – were also taken. The van was later recovered in the car park of a GAA Club on Old Road, Mayobridge.
In a second incident an attempt was made to gain entry to another house in Rosses Quay around 7am on Monday, 28th November. The house alarm sounded and the intruder made off without gaining access. Householders are reminded to take all possible steps to ensure their home is secure. Speaking to Newry Times, a local PSNI spokesman said, “Before you leave your home go into each room and make sure all windows are tightly shut and locked. You may want to consider buying window locks. A burglar may be less likely to enter your home if a window needs to be smashed. Check all doors leading into your home are secure and locked and ensure your main garage door is shut and locked.”
The PSNI officer added, “Anyone with information in relation to the two incidents in Rossess Quay should contact detectives in Newry. If you require further crime prevention advice please contact E District’s crime prevention officers. The number to phone is 0845 600 8000.”
