Balliol burglar may be student

first_imgThe man escaped while a porter called the police. Police are appealing for help after a burglar was stopped from stealing electrical equipment from Balliol College. At around midnight on Friday 29 February, a college porter stopped a man (shown in the CCTV image above) after he noticed a bulge under his jacket and a cable hanging out of it. The man handed over the Digibox and DVD player he had been concealing, but escaped before the porter could call the police. Police spokesman Toby Shergold suggested that the burglar may be a member of the University. ‘One line of enquiry is that he is a student himself,’ he said. Anyone with information on the CCTV image is asked to call DC Louise Tompkins on 08458 505505 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.last_img

While her sister swam in the frigid waters off Singing Beach, Catherine threw the bottle into the ocean.Speaking to Donegal Daily, Catherine’s dad Bob says that the sturdy vessel that carried Catherine’s message across the Atlantic was a half wine bottle secured with a cork. Eager to try out the typewriter that she had just received as a Christmas present, the letter described her family, her pets, and her interests.After 14 months, the day Catherine had been waiting for finally arrived. The letter, from “the shores of Co. Donegal”, was delivered to her house earlier this week, much to her delight.The Donegal sender also included a map showing Catherine just how far her lucky bottle travelled, washing up on Tra Na Rossan beach in north Donegal.Bob says: “The person who found the message was kind enough to write a lovely letter back to Catherine, as she had requested. However, the letter we received was not signed and there was no return address.“The only clue is that the letterhead is the Gallagher family shield.”Bob would like to reach out to the kind person who took the time to write to Catherine.If you are Catherine’s Donegal penpal, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing [email protected] girl (11) delighted as her message in a bottle is answered from Donegal was last modified: April 1st, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Americadonegalmessage in a bottletra na rossanlast_img read more
