Police investigating burglaries of three Co Antrim houses
ITEMS - including an OBE medal - were stolen during burglaries at three houses in Co Antrim.
Police said the properties in Randalstown were targeted between 3pm on Friday and 4.45pm on Saturday.
Entry was forced through the rear of the houses in the Church Road and Kemmilhill Gardens area.
A PSNI spokesperson said: "In two of the incidents entry was forced via a rear window and in the other forced via a rear door.
"In all instances the properties were then ransacked and items including cash, jewellery and cigarettes were stolen.
"Amongst these was an OBE medal which is of great sentimental value to one of the victims so I am asking for the public's assistance with the investigation."
Police have appealed for anyone with information on the burglaries to contact them.
