Sinn Féin MLA for Upper Bann John O’Dowd has slammed those behind attacks on the PSNI in Craigavon earlier today.

Speaking today Mr O’Dowd said:

“Earlier today the PSNI recovered, following a search, a large amount of stolen property in the Craigavon area. It was during these searches that they came under attack from a crowd throwing a several small blast bombs and a petrol bomb. 

“Those behind these attacks have disrupted the local community and put people living here at risk. It is wholly unacceptable. What people locally are asking is why was there such concern by those involved in these disturbances to disrupt the recovery of stolen property?”
