Thieves target Portadown homes in series of burglaries

Police in Portadown are appealing for information following a series of burglaries in the county Armagh town.

Sometime between 7.15am and 2.20pm on Thursday, 4 December, entry was forced to a house on Coronation Street.

A number of rooms were searched and a Nokia Lumia mobile phone, jewellery and cash were taken.

Constable Arlene Wells said: “We would like to hear from anyone who noticed any activity around this area during these times or has information in relation to this burglary. We can be contacted in Portadown on 101, quoting ref: 839041214.”

Police are also appealing for information following a burglary in the Charles Street area.

Around 6.30pm on Sunday, 7 December, a female occupant returned home and disturbed two makes in her living room.

The pair climbed out the front window of the house and made off towards Corcrain Mews. Both males are described as being of average height and were wearing hoodies.

Constable Sarah Murray explained: “We would like to hear from anyone who has information in relation to this incident. We can be contacted in Portadown on 101, quoting ref: 966071214.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage householders to revisit their security routines. A few simple steps like, locking all windows and doors, investing in good security lighting, removing valuables from sight and leaving lights and/or a radio on while you’re out can reduce your chance of becoming a victim of burglary.

“If you would like more crime prevention advice you can phone 101 to speak to your local crime prevention officer or neighbourhood policing team.”
