Sinn Fein councillor Mickey Larkin has called on communities to stand together in the face of ongoing burglaries. burglary3“This week has seen another family home defiled by the actions of thugs,” he told Newry Times. “The criminals smashed a patio door to gain access before ransacking the house. They stole cash and personal items, damaged interior doors and left the property in a mess. Larkin called for residents to increase security around their homes and be aware of any suspicious activity or vehicles. “In another incident a homeowner arrived to find a silver transit van sitting on his drive. “When he confronted the driver another male appeared from the field adjoining the house got into the van and they drove off. The resident’s diligence may have saved the day on this occasion.” Sinn Fein MLA Megan Fearon condemned the thieves. “There have been a number of burglaries in the Meigh and Dromintee areas over the last month. These are traumatic for householders who work hard to provide for their families. She added, “The invasion and desecration of your home is something that many people take time to recover from. Anyone involved in these robberies are parasites feeding off the communities they target. They must be stopped.”
