A wheelbarrow was used to transport stolen tools of “significant value” to a vehicle parked in a field beside two neighbouring properties in Broughshane on Monday (May 13).

Officers received a report just before 6.30am and a second report an hour later that two garden sheds had been broken into in the Ballycloghan Road area of the village.

Chief Inspector Boyd said: “When officers attended, it appeared two sheds of neighbouring properties had been targeted in the vicinity, with the same force used to gain entry to both.

"It also looks like a vehicle was driven into the field beside where the properties are located and a wheelbarrow was used to move garden tools, which were of significant value to the owners from both properties.
