Constable McCoy warned: "Please don't assume the sound of breaking glass is your neighbour putting glass in the recycling, particularly if they should be in work at that time.

"Most arrests at the scene or nearby are due to vigilant neighbours phoning Police straight away. If you see a stranger walking up the side of your neighbours home then hear breaking glass please don't hesitate to use the 999 number."
