Independent councillor Paul Berry

A car was set on fire and an attempt made to set another alight in the Mullavilly Heights area of Laurelvale during the week.

Police are investigating this “serious criminal damage” and have appealed for information.

It happened overnight on Tuesday, October 21 and into Wednesday morning, just after midnight.

Independent Unionist Councillor Paul Berry, who lives locally, said he was “shocked” by the incident.

He told Armagh I: “This area is very tranquil and has never experienced such criminality before and the local community is shocked by such actions.

“I would appeal to anyone who noticed anything suspicious over recent days to report it to the police on the Crimestoppers number or call into the Tandragee PSNI Station and speak to the local police.

“There is no place in the community for such actions and I would condemn this criminal activity.”

Anyone who can help can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or phoning the non-emergency number, 101, directly and quoting reference 16 of 22/10/14.
