Detectives are investigating a burglary at the home of an elderly woman near Doagh.

The woman, aged in her 80s, left her house in The Longshot area at around 11.50am on Wednesday morning (September 16), returning home just over an hour later to find that the property had been broken into.

“At this time it is not believed that anything has been taken, however damage was caused in the house,” a PSNI spokesperson said.

Detective Inspector Millar appealed for anyone with information about the burglary to contact detectives at Antrim Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, or to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and speak to them anonymously.
