Police are investigating a series of burglaries that occurred in Banbridge town during the night of Wednesday, June 8.

A commercial property, a shed and a car all were broken into but a subsequent report of items stashed in a hedgerow, not far from the scene of the burglaries, uncovered some of the property stolen in the three incidents.

A police spokesperson said: “We are obviously very keen to catch the thieves and would ask that if anyone sees anyone/anything that you think is suspicious, please give us a call on the Non-emergency number 101.

“These thieves are taking property that law abiding people have worked hard to purchase - let’s join together and do our best to stop them”.
