Chairperson Of Newry Mourne and Down Council Charlie Casey has expressed his concern after a recent number of robberies in Newry.

The Sinn Féin representative urged vigilance and told Newry Times, “There have unfortunately been a recent spate of robberies in the Dominic Street and Raymond Kelly  Park vicinities.



“An elderly couple home at the High Walk in Dominic Street has been burgled in broad daylight. This follows the scamming of a lady in the Raymond Kelly Park.”

The Newry City Councillor continued, “Incidents like this heighten fear and concern within communities, particularly for our older most vulnerable residents.



“Those engaged in these selfish criminal acts care about nothing only themselves. I would urge everyone to be extra vigilant, to watch out for any suspicious behaviour.

“These criminals must be apprehended and face the full rigours of the law.

The Council Chairperson added, “I would ask that anyone who might have information in relation to these specific incidents to contact the Police.

“Also please ensure never to let anyone into your house without first seeing proper ID. If in doubt call the PSNI Quick Check Scheme on 101).”
