Police are appealing for information following a report of a distraction burglary at a house in the Ballymacrea Road area of Portrush on Friday afternoon (March 5th).

Inspector Patton said: “Around 12:50pm, it was reported that two men called to a house in the area stating they were from a utilities company. A man and woman, who were inside the property, were distracted by one of the men, while the other entered the house.

“The two suspects left the property a short time later, and it’s believed that a purse, bank books and a sum of cash were taken during the incident. It is also believed that both men made off by car.

“We are appealing to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity at the time of the incidents to contact police on 101, quoting reference number 780 05/03/21.”

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.

Independent Councillor William McCandless said “When your attention is distracted, an accomplice may enter your premises via an unlocked door to steal cash and items of value. Often you will not be aware this has occurred until they have left. Genuine callers will carry ID, so please ask them for documentation for inspection before permitting entry to your home.

I would further appeal to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity at the time of this incident to contact police on 101.”
