Two men were arrested in the early hours of this morning in Scarva on suspicion of burglary.

The men, aged 27 and 16, were arrested in Station Road .

The arrests follow a distraction burglary in the Bawnmore Park area of Newtownabbey on Monday.

Detective Inspector Millar said: “At a 10.20am, a male called at the door of an elderly lady and asked her to go round to the back of the house. While the woman was distracted, one other male went into her home. It is not believed that anything has been taken. The two males are believed to have been travelling in a silver Peugeot 307.

“The two males currently remain in custody assisting police with their enquiries.”
