Possible link between spate of local burglaries

Police are appealing for information about a silver BMW 3 Series car which is believed to have been involved in burglaries and an attempted burglary that have occurred in the Newry, Armagh and County Monaghan areas over the past few days.

Detective Inspector Keith Gawley said, “At approximately 5.25pm on Saturday 31 January it was reported that three males were disturbed attempting to break in to a house in the Ashgrove Avenue area of Newry.

“Sometime between 1.30pm and 2pm on Friday 30 January, a house in the Killylea Road area of Armagh was broken into. The burglar or burglars were disturbed by the homeowners returning home. A silver BMW 3 Series was seen driving away from the house.

“It is believed that this may be linked to another burglary that occurred in the Ballyrath Road area of Armagh, also on Friday 30 January. Sometime between noon and 1.45pm a house was broken into.

“The silver BMW is believed to have a false registration number of TJZ 6053. The original vehicle registration number is believed to be 09D30244 and the men in the car have Southern accents.

“I would appeal to anyone who sees this vehicle, or anyone with any information about any of these incidents, to contact police at Ardmore or Armagh Police Station on the non emergency number 101.

He added, “Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
