Police are appealing for information following a report of burglary from Carryduff Fire Station on Monday, 25th March. 

Around 8.30pm, it was reported that the fire station on the Comber Road had been broken into and a number of items stolen.

Sergeant Regan said: “Following initial enquiries, we believe that the break-in occurred between 5pm and 8.15pm.

“It was then discovered that vital equipment was stolen from a fire appliance. 

“It’s very disappointing that Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and local firefighters, who work tirelessly for their community, would be targeted in this way that leaves the community without potentially lifesaving equipment.

“We would ask anyone who has any information, CCTV or dashcam footage, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1839 25/03/24.

“Our investigation is ongoing and your support with our enquiries is very much appreciated.”
