Green crime spree Audi ‘lying low’, but police now seek information about sightings of blue Opel Astra

Opel Astra

IT WOULD seem the mystery green Audi, reportedly linked with a crime spree across the county has gone off the radar.

Local PSNI inspector Roy Robinson suggested that a recent appeal in the Fermanagh Herald may have forced criminals linked with the southern registered car to go to ground.

“Since the report in Herald that vehicle seems to have been lying low and hasn’t been seen in the area since,” explained Mr Robinson.


For the past month police have been on the lookout for the distinctive green Audi S6, believed to be linked to up to 20 burglaries here by travelling criminals. It is believed that the vehicle targeted properties on both sides of the border with those travelling in the car also linked to car windows being smashed and contents including handbags being stolen.

While it is good news that the green Audi has not been seen in Fermanagh in over two weeks Mr Robinson renewed an appeal for a light blue Opel Astra with a southern registration.

It is believed this vehicle was involved in a crime spree on July 19 which targeted places of worship in rural Fermanagh.

Vehicles parked outside St Mary’s Church in Teemore, the Catholic church at Killesher and the Church of Ireland church at Castle Archdale, were all targeted in a morning raid along with vehicles at Florence Court Forest Car Park.

The inspector added: “This is the latest car that seems to have been used by them. It’s a southern registration again, an Opel Astra, light blue in colour. That one is very much a vehicle people need to be wary of and not leave any valuables lying in their vehicles when they go to church.”
