Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses following a recent burglary in south Belfast.

Police received a report shortly after 6am on Monday, 8th January of a break in at a house in the Jerusalem Street area.

We believe the burglary occurred approximately half an hour prior to the report being made to police.

It was reported a man dressed all in black, aged between 20-30 years old, and approximately 5ft 9 inches tall, had entered the property and stole a brown leather wallet.

No one was inside the house at the time and we believe nothing else was taken. The man left on foot in the direction of Rugby Avenue.

Our investigation is ongoing - with enquiries continuing. We would appeal to anyone with any information including dash-cam, mobile or CCTV footage of the area, or who may have witnessed suspicious activity between 5.30am and 6am on Monday, 8th January to contact us on 101, quoting reference number 167 08/01/24.
