East Antrim UUP MLA Roy Beggs has spoken out to condemn a fire at commercial premises on the Linn Road last week
Mr Beggs said “Arson is very serious. Lives could have been put at risk through the mindless actions of those responsible. As a result, a vital and important local service with its associated jobs could be at risk. I would urge anyone who knows any information relating to the arson to contact the PSNI on 101, or alternatively Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Police have released more details of a fire at a commercial premises on Linn Road last week in an effort to secure more information. The incident took place at approximately 11.30pm on Monday December 5, when fire damage was caused to eight stock roller cages and a variety of break baskets at the commercial premises in Larne.
Constable Ryan McKenna said: “The CCTV system picked up a young male on a mountain bike with a dark rucksack, grey tracksuit bottoms, navy hooded top and striped beanie hat. CCTV shows the male entering the premises at 11.25pm, just before the damage is caused. He is then seen making off on his bike in the direction of Loran Road.”
