Kelly tackles would-be car thief

15 July, 2015 - by Gerry Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly helped a neighbour tackle a would-be car thief in the early hours of this morning. 

Mr Kelly said; 

"At around 5am this morning I was woken up by noise outside close to my home. 

"I got dressed and went outside and discovered that someone had broken in to one of my neighbours' houses and was appeared to be stealing their car. 

"The police were called and I helped my neighbour restrain the individual until the police arrived. 

"I want to thank the passing motorist who raised the alarm and blocked the car from leaving the driveway. 

"Car crime is a serious issue and no one needs the expense of having to repair or replace a car which has been stolen."
