Anna Lo MLA said: “Somebody could be killed if this spate of car hijackings in Belfast continues. Somebody could be hit by one of these stolen cars or the hijackers themselves may be killed if they lose control of the car.
“I am asking for this series of crimes to stop. The public are worried about the number of car hijackings in the last two weeks, they are scared that it might happen to them. The Police needs to move resources to combat these crimes and reassure the public.
“The police needs the support of the public if they are to catch those responsible for these hijackings, so I would urge anybody with any information about these crimes to contact the police.”
