SDLP councillor Roisin Loftus has expressed her disgust at recent burglary.
‘I would urge everyone in Kilrea and surrounding area to exercise caution after a spate of burglaries in the area.
On Saturday an elderly lady’s home was burgled in broad daylight, thankfully she herself wasn’t in the property at the time! Those responsible have no compassion for their victims.
‘In the run up to Christmas it’s important that we all look out for our neighbours. If you’re keeping presents at home, please keep them out of sight and make sure the house is well secured before you leave.
‘If anyone has any information or seen anyone acting suspiciously, please bring it forward to the police and help give those living in our community some peace of mind.’
