Chief Inspector Brenda Cairns, Area Commander for the area said “The priority of police in the Coleraine area is to keep the community safe and we will continue to use all means available to reduce and prevent criminality.
“Tackling criminality also requires the support of the public. We need information from communities.
“The small piece of information that you call police or Crimestoppers with may be the missing link in bringing persons involved in all types criminality before the courts.
“Your local neighbourhood team are on the ground every day.
“If you have concerns or information please speak to them. You can also call police on 0845 600 8000 or information can be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
