Man and woman are arrested on suspicion of theft

More good work from the CityWatch Lisburn CCTV operators led to the arrest of two suspected shoplifters on Tuesday evening, August 1.

Following a report from security staff that a male and female may have stolen clothing and other goods from a store at Bow Street Mall, the CityWatch team monitored the pair’s movements until the theft was confirmed and then passed details of their car to police.
