Description issued of burglar who stole clock of ‘great sentimental value’

A clock described as being of great sentimental value has been stolen during a burglary at The Pines in Lurgan.

Detectives in Craigavon have issued a description of the burglar and appealed for information.

Detective Constable Judith Smyth said: “Sometime between 7.15pm and 9.15pm on Tuesday, August, 26, a man forced entry to the rear of a house. At this stage we believe a brown wall clock was taken.

“This is of great sentimental value to the family and we are asking for information from the public to help us locate the clock. 

“The clock has a brass dial face, topped with a lunar calendar and another calendar on the face. It has double weight working parts and the clock face would be similar to that of a grandfather clock, while the body would be close to than of a Vienna wall clock.”

The thief is described as being around 25 years of age, of medium build, 5ft 6in tall and he spoke with a local accent. He was also wearing a hat.

“If you noticed any activity around the area during this time, or have information in relation to the whereabouts of the clock, please contact us in Craigavon on the 101 non-emergency number,” added DC Smyth.

If you prefer to provide information without giving your  details you can contact the independent Crimestoppers charity anonymously on  0800 555 111.
