Residents in Union Mills and Strang reported a number of incidents of would-be burglars trying to get into their properties through unlocked doors on Tuesday night.

Police want to hear from anyone in the area who noticed any unusual activity during this time or anything they found to be suspicious.

A spokesman said: ‘This sort of incident is unusual for our island but preventable by using basic crime prevention techniques such as locking your doors.’

Increased patrols will be in place through the next few nights.
