A SPECIAL crime prevention meeting has been organised after a 'disgusting' and 'well planned' burglary targeted three Church Street businesses last week.
Meeting organiser UUP Cllr Darryl Wilson has urged businesses and members of the public to "remain vigilant" adding that he is "liaising with the PSNI to see what measures they can put in place to help prevent further incidents."
The meeting takes place in Ground Cafe on High Street this Thursday from 5.30pm to 6.30pm and all business people are invited to attend.
Proprietors of Bumble & Bee, Bleu Hair Design and CT Ink, in the Old Town Bank building, arrived on Tuesday morning (Jan 9) to discover doors smashed open with large quantities of baby clothes and also hairdressing equipment stolen.
Police say "substantial damage" was caused to all three premises.
They think the burglaries occurred sometime between 6pm on Monday 8 and 9am on Tuesday 9 January and that they are linked.
Proprietor of Bumble & Bee, mum of three, Susan McAuley got the unwelcome news by text on Tuesday morning.
