Canavan urges Springfield residents to be vigilant following spate of thefts

24 April, 2020

Sinn Féin Councillor Claire Canavan has called on residents in the Springfield area to be vigilant after a spate of burglaries and thefts.

Cllr Canavan was speaking after a resident’s car was stolen from Isadore Avenue last night.

Cllr Canavan said:

“This is a quiet street and residents are rightly shocked this has happened.

“This incident the latest in a spate of burglaries in West Belfast over recent weeks and I would urge people to be vigilant and take extra security precautions. 

“There is currently a police investigation ongoing and I would appeal to anyone with information to bring it forward to the PSNI.

“Those responsible care nothing about the impact their actions have on the victims of their anti-community crimes. 

“It’s despicable that these crimes are being committed in our communities during a time when we are coming together to get through a health crisis and our frontline services are working tirelessly to protect the health and well-being of citizens.”
