Newry and Armagh Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has urged everyone to be extra vigilant.

She was reacting to news of a recent spate of burglaries in the Crossmaglen and Killeavy areas.



“It is disappointing to hear of this recent spate of criminal activity in the south Armagh area,” she told Newry Times.

“Those who enter people’s homes to rob and destroy care nothing about the impact their actions have on the victims of their anti-community crimes. I urge all to be extra vigilant.



She added, “Those who carry out these attacks on our communities need to be apprehended and face the full rigours of the law.”

Slieve Gullion area Councillor Terry Hearty echoed his colleague’s comments. “The selfish individuals and gangs involved in these criminal acts need to be caught.



“I would ask that anyone spotting any type of strange behaviour to report it immediately.

He added, “These thieves have shown that they are content to rob and plunder and cause fear within our families and communities.”
