A man in his 20s has been arrested following a creeper style burglary in Lisburn yesterday morning.

Chief Inspector McGrattan said: “At approximately 10am we received a report that a man had gained entry to a house in the Bridge Street area and stole the keys to a grey coloured BMW, before making off in the vehicle.

“The car was later seen driving erratically in the Bangor area where it mounted a footpath and crashed in another vehicle injuring two people inside.

“They were both taken to hospital for treatment.

“The driver then made off in the direction of west Belfast where he was detained by police in the Sultan’s Square area.

“The man, aged in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including burglary with intent to steal, driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs, dangerous driving and failing to stop where accident occurred causing damage.

“He has since been released on bail to allow for further enquiries.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the car in any of these areas or anyone who may have footage that could assist with enquiries to contact police on 101 quoting reference 475 of 11/08/23.”
