Sinn Féin councillor Liz Kimmins, meanwhile, has urged people to be vigilant.

“I would urge people to take all possible precautions when it comes to safeguarding their property and would also ask them to look out for friends and neighbours, particularly those who may be more vulnerable to these crimes,” she said.

“These criminals have no respect for people or property.  They are getting ever more audacious and we won’t stop them with individuals looking out for themselves, the only way to defeat them is for communities to look out for each other.”
