Police are urging the public to report suspicious vehicles or activity at the earliest opportunity.

The advice follows an incident in the Cranny Lane area of Bleary, on Wednesday, June 4. Around 10.15am a blue Subaru Impreza car, with four males on board, pulled up. Three of the males got out of the car and were making their way to the rear of a house when they observed the occupant at the window. The males then made off in the car at speed towards Craigavon.

In another incident earlier in the week a white Transit van was observed in the area of Lakelands around the time a burglary took place.

Sergeant Alwyn Peters, Brownlow Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “If you see a suspicious vehicle in your area please phone us immediately and write down details of the vehicle and the registration. The registration of a vehicle can help us to trace the owner and ascertain what their business in your area was. If we receive information of suspicious activity we can respond immediately, meaning there is a greater opportunity to prevent or detect a crime.

“If you are not sure if something is suspicious we would still like to hear from you. We can be contacted on the 101 non-emergency number or 999 in an emergency.”
