“Two houses were entered while the householders were at family events while a third unoccupied house was also broken into. Several items of sentimental value were stolen during the robberies.

“I have spoken to the PSNI in relation to these incidents. Two suspects were seen at one of the properties in Dromintee during lunchtime on Tuesday. Within an hour a second house was entered at Killean.

“The Police are seeking a number of vehicles in relation to this and other incidents. If anyone has information on these crimes or if they notice suspicious activity in their area they should report it immediately.
