Detectives in Newry and Mourne, supported by local officers in South Armagh, have recovered a number of vehicles and suspected firearms following a planned search of premises on Mountain Road, Cloughoge. Officers have recovered two vehicles, believed to be stolen, and two suspected firearms. Two quads have also been seized. Police say enquiries are ongoing. Speaking to Newry Times, Newry and Mourne Area Commander, Chief Inspector Davy Beck, said, “The hard work and commitment of local officers has resulted in dangerous weapons being taken out of circulation, making Newry and Mourne a safer place to be. “This search and the seizure of  vehicles should send a clear message that there is no hiding place for criminals in Newry and Mourne. “I would like to thank the local community for their support and patience during this operation. This again demonstrates how much more successful we are in tackling crime when we work together,” Beck added. Newry & Armagh DUP MLA William Irwin commented, “I am pleased that these items have been recovered and obviously this has been the result of community involvement in passing information to the local PSNI in the area, that is welcomed. “Hopefully the investigations will lead to convictions for those behind these thefts as rural crime continues to be a major concern across the constituency.”
