Those responsible for spate of burglaries must be brought to book – Fearon
Responding to a recent spate of burglaries in the south Armagh area Newry & Armagh Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has urged local people to be extra vigilant.
“It is disappointing to hear of this recent spate of criminal activity in the south Armagh area.
“Those who enter people’s homes to rob and destroy care nothing about the impact their actions have on the victims of their anti-community crimes. I urge all to be extra vigilant.
“Those who carry out these attacks on our communities need to be apprehended and face the full rigours of the law.
“Anyone with information on these burglars should bring it forward to the PSNI.”
Slieve Gullion area Councillor Terry Hearty said:
“At least four houses within the Crossmaglen area have been broken into. It is reported that up to five males, with their faces covered, in a black vehicle, were involved.
“The gangs involved in these criminal acts need to be caught and brought before the law.
“Please be alert to any suspicious activity and report it to the PSNI.
“The local Community Safety Group members are also available for support should anyone wish to contact them to assist them in dealing with the statutory agencies who provide help for victims.”
