East Antrim Ulster Unionist MLA John Stewart has expressed his disgust at the overnight arson attack on cars sitting outside a serving police officer’s home in the Glenarm Road area of Larne.
John Stewart MLA said:
“This sadly is not the first time that arsonists have targeted cars at residential properties in the Larne area, but the fact that the house outside which these vehicles were parked belongs to a serving police officer, makes this a particularly sinister incident.
“I will repeat what I have always said when cars have been burnt out in the past; the gangsters responsible for this have no support in the community and the people of Larne want nothing to do with this type of activity. It is time for the police - and especially the judiciary - to come down hard on whoever is behind this and put these criminals behind bars for a very long time.
“I urge anyone who knows anything about this latest incident to either contact the police or the confidential crimestoppers hotline on 0800 555 111”
