Sinn Fein councillor Liz Kimmins is urging residents in Newry to be vigilant of their property and to look out for neighbours. burglary3The local councillor issued the warning after a number of incidents in the Barcroft and Carrivemaclone areas. “At around 3.30am on Tuesday morning a man was spotted lurking at the back of a house in Barcroft Park,” she said. “A neighbour startled the man who ran off but it has left residents very shaken up.” According to Kimmins, the following night a house in the Carrivemaclone area was broken into at around 7pm. “With Christmas meaning darker evenings and more valuables in houses I would urge people to take whatever precautions necessary to protect their property,” she urged. “Be vigilant for suspicious behaviour, keep all doors, windows and gates locked, make sure your home is brightly lit and look out for your neighbours, especially the more vulnerable. Kimmins added, “I’d remind elderly people that they can access the Home Secure Project for security locks, lights etc.. which is funded through the PCSP and is based in Ballybot House. If anyone would like further info on this scheme please contact either myself or your local councillor.”
