Police investigate spate of burglaries in Newry and Armagh
The incidents reported include a creeper style burglary in the Baltarran Road area of Armagh at around 9:40pm on Sat evening (30th June). The house was broken into and the garage door rammed by thieves who stole a Vauxhall Corsa that was later recovered nearby in field along with a Silver Skoda Octavia VRM that had been used by four men seen acting suspiciously in the Armagh Road earlier in the evening.
A second creeper style burglary occurred in the Baltarran Road around 12:40am on Sun morning 1st July. Again the property was entered, ransacked, and a blue VW Golf was taken.
Shortly after 9pm on Sat 30th June burglars tried to enter a house on the Gosford Road, Markethill. A rear bedroom window was smashed and the wires of the alarm cut. At this stage it is not known if anything was taken. A number of similar attempts were made in the area of Lower Foughill Road, Newry and Glenanne Road, Glenanne and again it is not believed that anything was taken.
A link between these incidents is a strong line of inquiry.
