Witnesses sought after Spar alcohol theft

AN appeal has gone out for witnesses after two youths stole two boxes of Fosters Lager from Spar on Tuesday night.

The incident happened at around 9.40pm when two men wearing hooded tops, believed to be around 16 or 17-years-old, entered the Dickson Street store looking to buy alcohol.

Shop owner George McCusker said: “The boys were asked for ID and they said they were wanting something else and went to the other side of the shop, but then they just bolted out the door.

“It’s really disappointing and things are getting really bad when something like that happens.”

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the police station on 375051.
