Police are appealing for information following a creeper type burglary at a house in Gleneagles, Londonderry.

Detective Constable Tony Douglas said it occurred at around 5am on Saturday morning, April 11.

“Two men entered the house and when confronted by the occupant, left,” he said.

“It is thought they took the keys of a blue Octavia Skoda and returned later and made off in the car. The car was later discovered extensively damaged by fire at around 8.15am in the Earhart Park area.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have seen this vehicle or noticed anyone acting suspiciously in the area to contact detectives at Strand Road on the non-emergency number 101.

“Or, alternatively contact Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
