THREE PARROTS THAT were stolen in Down are believed to have been recovered.

They were stolen from a commercial premises in the Seaforde Road area of Downpatrick on Monday.

The PSNI recovered one parrot during a search of a property in the Burnreagh Drive area of Newtownards, however enquiries are ongoing to determine whether this is one of the stolen parrots.

Another two parrots were returned to the owner by a member of the public who contacted him directly.

The PSNI say that “initial enquiries suggest these are the parrots which were stolen from the premises”.


During the search of the property in Newtownards a number of other items including boxes of washing powder which are believed to have been stolen during burglaries in the Down area in recent days were recovered.
