Police launched an investigation following reports of burglaries at Willow Dean, Markethill, and Bracken Close, Newry, and attempted burglaries at Ravens Glen and Latt Villas in Newry, overnight between Saturday and Sunday, October 4 and 5.
A computer, mobile phone and cash were taken from the house in Bracken Close while a van was stolen from Willow Dean. This van was later recovered by An Garda Siochana in Dublin.

A silver Volkswagen Passat car was also seized. Items were also recovered from subsequent searches in the Callanbridge and Aghanore Walk areas.
“We arrested three people, two men aged 34 and 36 years old and a 36-year-old female, for burglary and attempted burglary offences. They were later released on bail pending further enquiries.
“Our investigation is ongoing and I would ask anyone with information in relation to the incidents above to contact detectives in Newry on the 101 number.”
