Police hunt for Smurf burglars

A RESIDENT sprayed two would-be burglars with blue paint before they made a get-away during an attempted burglary in Willingdon.

Two men were disturbed trying to steal copper from a property in Anderida Road on Sunday, June 24.

Both men wore hoodies and escaped in a dark four-door Saloon car – but not before the plucky resident spray painted them with blue paint.

Sgt Mark Ritchie, of the Neighbourhood Policing Team covering Willingdon, said: “I would like to hear from anyone that has any information regarding this incident.

“The two males would be easily identifiable due to the blue paint sprayed on their clothing and face.”
