A car stolen in Eglinton late last week is believed to have been used in criminal activity in Co Donegal.

The white Ford Focus was stolen from the driveway of a house at Dunboyne Park in Eglinton in the early hours of Friday, 30th. Several other cars were searched through at Dunboyne Park around the time the Focus was stolen.

It was recovered in a damaged condition at Barr’s Lane in the Hazlebank area of Derry shortly after 4.30am on Saturday.

In the intervening period, it is believed that it was used during criminal activity in the Muff and Killea areas of Co Donegal.

It was also seen in the Rathlin Drive area of Derry at about 5.30am on Friday.

Police on both sides of the border are keen to hear from anyone who can help identify the occupants. In Northern Ireland, information can be given on the police non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, it can be provided to the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
