Sinn Féin councillor Liz Kimmins has urged people to remain vigilant and look out for their vulnerable neighbours following a break-in in the Carrivemaclone area. BurglaryAt some stage during the day on Wednesday thieves forced their way into a home in the area and stole a number of items. “I would call on the community to stand together to help us beat these thugs,” she told Newry Times. “While any attempt to invade the sanctity of someone’s home is a loathsome act this incident was particularly despicable as the home broken into was that of an elderly gentleman living on his own. “Thankfully he was not at home at the time but I would urge people to remain vigilant for anything unusual in their area and in particular to keep an eye out for elderly or vulnerable neighbours.

Kimmins added, “I would also urge anyone who witnessed anything unusual on Wednesday to contact the PSNI and help get these thugs off our streets.”
