Police investigate break-ins in Hillsborough

Police are investigating a series of break-ins in County Down.

A man took a set of car keys from a property at Downshire Hall in Hillsborough early on Saturday but was disturbed when he tried to drive off.

He moved on to nearby Gloucester Park, where he unsuccessfully tried to smash the front door of a house with a large brick.

He then broke into a house at Abercorn Drive. He stole car keys and drove off but later crashed into a wall.

A 25-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Police have appealed for information.
