A 24-year-old man has been arrested following a creeper style burglary in Bangor and a burglary in Ballyclare within the last few days.

Police received a report that a man had been seen on a video doorbell entering a property on the Killaire Road, Bangor at approximately 9.40pm on Sunday 23rd June.

The man took the keys of a red coloured Suzuki Swift that was parked outside and made off in the vehicle.

The car was later seen in the north Belfast area.

A second report was made at approximately 5.50am this morning, Tuesday 25th June, of a man trying to gain access to a shed at a property in the Cartall Road area of Ballyclare.

Officers attended and located the man and the stolen car. He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of burglary, theft of a vehicle, attempted burglary, attempted criminal damage, theft, no driving licence and no insurance.

He remains in police custody at this time.

I am appealing to anyone with CCTV or other footage that could assist with enquiries to contact police on 101 quoting reference 1450 of 24/06/24
