Police say they are focusing more on burglaries after latest failed attempts

The PSNI has assured county Armagh residents that they are stepping up their focus on burglaries following a recent surge.

And police in Craigavon are asking the public to be vigilant following two attempted burglaries in Waringstown.

Sometime between 7pm and 11.30pm on Wednesday, 20 April, an attempt was made to gain entry to two houses in Murray Wood.

Fortunately the attempts were not successful.

Constable Kenny said: “We would like to hear from anyone who noticed any suspicious activity or vehicles in the area around this time. We are also encouraging residents to be vigilant and keep an eye out for any activity or vehicles which look out of place in your neighbourhood. If you see something that doesn’t look right, phone us straight away.

“We are focusing on burglary during the coming weeks and asking all residents to be mindful of their home security. Please make sure your windows and doors are locked at all times, keep all valuables out of sight and ask someone to keep an eye on your property if it is going to be any vacant for any length of time.”

Police in Lurgan can be contacted on 101.
