Councillor seeks “PSNI guarantee” after recent spate of local burglaries

Slieve Gullion area Sinn Féin Councillor Roisin Mulgrew has said that she will meet the PSNI to discuss the ongoing spate of house break-ins throughout the area and their focus on apprehending the criminals engaged in these acts.

“Two homes in the Green Road and Bessbrook have been broken into, robbed and ransacked,” she told Newry Times.

“They are the most recent in this ongoing spate of such crimes throughout the area.



“Those who have carried this out are criminals who care nothing about their victims and the hurt they are inflicting on them and their families.

“Those engaged in these attacks on our families, neighbours and friends homes and properties need to be apprehended,” she insisted.

The local Councillor continued, “There is a feeling within the community that these thieves are acting without fear and robbing where and when they want.



“I will be meeting with the PSNI as a matter of urgency to seek assurances that their officers and resources are focused on tackling and apprehending these criminal gangs.

“We as a community can and must play our part by being vigilant and alert to suspicious behaviour and reporting any such activities to the Police.

She added, “Ultimately, it is the Police that must stop them and as I stated, I will seek guarantees that they are fully resourced and focused on doing so.”
