Warning as three men in blacked out van selling knives in Markethill

Residents in Markethill are being urged to be vigilant of men selling knives in the town.

Police have told people to be on lookout for three males in a silver van with blacked out windows doing the rounds in the area.

They are understood to be going door-to-door selling knives.

The warning comes as police continue to crack down on crime in the area, following a number of high-profile incidents in recent weeks.

Just a few weeks ago would-be thieves were thwarted by a family dog in Mullaghbrack.

However, others weren’t so lucky a few weeks prior to that, with a number of homes burgled in the town.

If you spot this van or anything suspicious please contact 101 and quote serial number 435.
