Police warn against online hysteria

Tue, 20 Jan 2015

Suspected burglars yet again narrowly escaped the police after being disturbed at a property in Derby Square, Douglas, last night.

The two men were both described as 6ft in height and were both wearing dark jackets and jeans and beanies - one of the men was carrying a bag.

Police dogs picked up the males scent but the hunt was called off after an hour of fruitless searching.

It was a busy night for the police, due in part to the large amount of online speculation surrounding a Seat Ibiza car and its suspected involvement in the burglaries.

Detective inspector Derek Flint says this type of hysteria is not helpful to anyone:
