Gardai investigating spate of burglaries in Inishowen

Gardai in Donegal are exploring possible links to burglaries carried out yesterday in the Inishowen area and reports from PSNI of a number of elderly people being targeted in a spate of similar incidents across the Strabane and Castlederg areas yesterday afternoon.

Between 2pm yesterday afternoon and 6:30pm, two properties were targeted in the Muff and Fahan areas with a sum of money and jewellery taken.

Meanwhile, Knowehead Presbyterian Church was also broken into with no reports of anything being taken.

Gardai believe all three break ins to be linked and are interested in the movements of a black 1 series BMW.

Garda Sean Sweeney is appealing to anyone who may have any information relating to the burglaries to contact Gardai in Buncrana:
