Police now have security fears as burglars target outdoor key safes to raid homes
People have been warned to make outdoor key safes as secure as possible following a spate of burglaries.
Police have been called to four burglaries in the past six weeks in which thieves broke into key safes outside houses in a bid to carry out raids.
A house in Central Avenue was targeted after burglars managed to prise open the safe and unlock the front door.
Belongings were stolen from the house two weeks ago while a grandmother was asleep upstairs.
On Tuesday, burglars struck again at a home in First Avenue, when they managed to break open a key safe close to the front door.
As the burglars tried to get into the house, the homeowner confronted them.
They fled without managing to steal anything.
Sgt Mark McQuade, from the community policing team, urged residents to be careful.
He believes the burglaries are all linked.
He said: “We have seen a spate of burglaries where people have tampered with the small key safes located on the outside of the door - it is usually something that elderly people use.
“They put their own front door key inside and visitors can tap in a code to get the key out.
“It is clear from the amount of burglaries we have had recently and the similarities with the lock safes, that someone is out there looking for them to take them off the wall and break into them while in situ.”
