It was reported yesterday that three pieces of equipment - an auger drill, a rock breaker and an excavating bucket - parked in a construction area on Glenshane Road had been stolen, sometime between 6pm on Friday April 29 and 6am yesterday.

Inspector Moyne said: “It would have taken some effort to remove these pieces of equipment, and we would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area and saw any suspicious activity to get in touch. We would also appeal for people to be vigilant if they’re offered similar pieces of equipment for sale in suspicious circumstances. If you have information which can assist our enquiries, please call us.”

The number to call is 101, quoting reference number 628 of 02/05/22.
