Heartless burglars steal OAP’s money

Police are investigating a break-in at the home of an elderly man in Princes Crescent, Whiteabbey at the weekend.

The burglary was reported to police at around 8pm on Sunday, December 18. A quantity of jewellery and cash were taken.

It is understood the man was out at church when the burglars struck.

This was the latest in a series of sickening incidents during which pensioners’ homes have been targeted while they’ve been attending church services. Several similar burglaries have been reported in Ballyduff, Monkstown and Rathcoole over recent months.

Investigating officers have appealed for anyone with information about the incident to contact them at Newtownabbey Station on 0845 600 8000.
