A BURGLAR is in custody after he was caught last night trespassing a property in Derry and making off with items that didn’t belong to him.
PSNI Foyle say LPT 2 officers have been patrolling rural areas to prevent and deter crime with farms being targeted by thieves for valuable items.
A police spokesperson said: “In the early hours of this morning we were called to the Campsie area following a report of a burglary in progress.
“Four crews raced to circulate the area to locate the culprit.
“One male was arrested and a number of items were located in the vicinity of the reporting persons house which had been stolen from that property.
One of the items was a large milk churn…”
The spokesperson added: “We are out in your communities every night to keep you safe. Report any suspicious activity.
“Together we can make our communities safer.”
If you notice any suspicious activity near properties ring the PSNI on the 101 number.
