The Sinn Féin representative told Newry Times, “Sometime after 10 am a house outside Meigh was broken into and ransacked.



“The thieves went through the house like a whirlwind leaving behind a trail of destruction.

 “A family member returned home to find the back door forced open and personal belongings scattered around the rooms.

“The police were called and valuable forensic evidence was recovered at the scene.

“Hopefully this will help to identify these criminals who are preying upon this community.”



Councillor Larkin continued, “This invasion of a family home accompanied by the knowledge that someone has desecrated that sanctuary in order to steal from you can have a serious detrimental effect on the householder.

“I have called with the victim to offer both my support and the support of the local community.

“If anyone witnessed suspicious activity or captured dash cam footage that morning between 10 am and 11 am on the Dromintee Road, Meigh I would encourage them to come forward to help protect our community and take these criminals off the streets.”
