Police in Newry are appealing for information following two burglaries. Speaking to Newry Times, Sergeant Colin Massey explained, “We received reports of two burglaries on Thursday night into Friday morning. “The first burglary occurred in Barley Mews. Entry was forced to a house between 5.30pm and 9pm on Thursday, 20th November. A bedroom was ransacked and, at this stage, we believe jewellery has been taken. “In the second burglary entry was forced to a house in O’Neill Avenue. Cash was taken and the thief/thieves made off from the rear of the house. The dwelling was ransacked and a sum of cash taken. “We would like to hear from anyone who has information in relation to either of these burglaries. We can be contacted on the 101 number. “I would also like to remind the public to be vigilant of suspicious activity and keep an eye on their neighbourhood. If you notice people or vehicles that look out of place or appear suspicious please contact us straight away. He added, “We would much rather take the time to check out a report than miss the opportunity of preventing a crime.”
