Acting Superintendent Mark Grange said:
“It is extremely disappointing to see victims of the floods being targeted in this way.
“It is impossible to comprehend why anyone would want to bring further suffering to those who are already in a very vulnerable situation.
“Burglary will not be tolerated and those who commit this type of crime will face the full force of the law.
“I want to take this opportunity to remind residents to be vigilant and ensure property is as secure as it possibly can be.”
