Flatscreen TVs, laptop and Markey Robinson paintings stolen from Antrim home

A digital camera and jewellery were also stolen.

POLICE IN ANTRIM have issued a public appeal following a burglary at a house in Newtownabbey a fortnight ago.

During the raid, which occurred some time between 6pm on Friday, 28 February and 2am on Saturday 1 March, a number of artworks were stolen from a home on Sharonmore Avenue.

The paintings included work by Belfast artist Markey Robinson, whose pieces sell for thousands of euro.

Two flatscreen TVs, a digital camera, a laptop, a quantity of jewellery and a number of other items were also taken.

The PSNI have asked for anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area or who has any information to contact them on 0845 600 8000.
