“The men fled the house and made off from the area in a black coloured Audi A6 car.



“Follow up enquiries have revealed that a similar black coloured car had been observed in the vicinity of the other burglaries.

“In the Newry Road incident a male knocked at the front door of the house at around 7pm while a number of other males entered the rear of the property and attempted to steal a handbag. 

“They were disturbed by the owner of the property and made offempty-handedd in a black coloured car.
