Crime spate in Stranorlar over the course of weekend

A number of criminal incidents took place in the Stranorlar area over the course of the weekend. 

A number of items were stolen from a parked car on the grounds of St Mary's Stranorlar on Saturday, July 23. This incident occurred between 1pm and 3pm. 

A wedding was taking place in the church at the time. One of the guests returned to their car to find that their wallet, which contained cash and bank cards, the wedding card and a cash gift had been stolen. No damage was caused to the vehicle. 

Meanwhile, on the same day, in the early hours of Saturday morning a couple of cars that were parked in the driveway at a house in Dunwiley, Stranorlar were interfered with. Sergeant Charlene Anderson said contents from one of the cars were spilled along the driveway.
