Vigilance warning after latest in spate of local burglaries

Police in Lurgan are reminding the public of the importance of contacting police immediately if  they notice any suspicious activity in their local areas.
The reminder comes following a burglary and attempted burglary on Monday, May 12.
At 11.35 am the occupants of a house in Oakridge returned home to find three males attempting to gain entry to the rear of their house. The males made off without gaining entry.
In another incident entry was gained to a house in The Grange between the morning and 1.28pm. A number of rooms were ransacked and jewellery taken.
Inspector Ken  Annett, Lurgan Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “I cannot stress enough the  importance of contacting police when you notice anything out of the ordinary in  your neighbourhood, whether that is suspicious vehicles or people acting in a  suspicious manner. We would much rather take the time to check out an incident  which turns out be regular than miss the opportunity to prevent or detect  crime.
“It is also  important for the public to know that the emergency 999 number should be used if  you suspect a crime is ongoing. The quicker we can respond to a crime scene the  more opportunity we have of finding those responsible.
“I would ask  anyone with information about the two incidents above to contact us on the 101  non-emergency number.”
