SDLP Newry Councillor Kevin McAteer has condemned the recent shed break-ins in the Barcroft area and labelled them ‘a disgusting act’. The comments come after it was reported that a number of sheds in the area were broken into. Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor McAteer said, “It is an utter disgrace that anyone would break into someone’s property at any time however, I find it particularly concerning that something such as this would occur this close to Christmas. “I condemn these attacks on our local community and I ask anyone with any information to come forward,” he added. Echoing McAteer’s sentiments, Newry & Mourne Sinn Féin Councillor Liz Kimmins said that there is a growing concern at the rise of thefts on homes and properties. “Sheds in Barcroft were broken into and items including a power washer and a bicycle were stolen. There are genuine concerns about what seems to be a rise in this type of criminal activity and I would once again appeal to all to be vigilant. The Sinn Féin Councillor also revealed that an attempt was made to steal her own car but the potential theft had been interrupted after neighbours noticed suspicious activity. “Neighbours in Cloghogue where I live noticed suspicious activity. Their actions ensured that the would be thief was deterred from his criminal act,” she added.
