POLICE inquiries into allegations of theft and burglary in the Ballure Road area of Ramsey has resulted in three men from the United Kingdom being arrested.
Inquires are continuing and police are trying to find other victims.
The area that has been targeted appears to be concentrated from Queens Drive East towards Ballure Road and minor roads leading off it.
Police are appealing for residents in the area to check their vehicles, sheds and outbuildings as soon as possible to ensure they have not had any possessions stolen.
Detective Sergeant Richards said: ‘Some of victims may not yet know that they have had items stolen from them and I would urge them to check carefully particularly if they are missing items of jewellery, work tools or compact discs.
‘I am also keen to identify anyone that may have seen a large white Ford Transit van either parked up or in the vicinity of Ballure Road, Ramsey, at any time during the evening of Saturday.
‘Many of these crimes were preventable and at this time of the year when many of us will have Christmas Shopping and presents in our cars or around our properties it is essential to deter opportunistic thieves by locking our doors.”
Two men have been charged with a number of offences and will appear in Court on Monday morning. A third man has been released on police bail.
If anyone has any information or believes they are a victim of crime then please contact Ramsey police station on 812234.
