A business premise in a Co Armagh town was targeted by thieves in the fourth similar attack in as many weeks.
The shop on Kinelowen Street in Keady – the main thoroughfare through the town – is the latest business to be hit by these criminals.
It is understood a large and substantial sum of cash was taken during the incident, which happened overnight on Friday/Saturday.
Sinn Fein councillor Darren McNally says he believes those responsible are not just opportunistic thieves passing through the area.
“I had a conversation just this week with a PSNI inspector raising my concerns that there seemed to be a pattern to these break ins,” said councillor McNally.
He added: “I didn’t buy into their idea that these were traveling criminals from outside the area passing through.
“There is a definite pattern to these break-ins which would suggest that the people reside in the town or close by.
“I would urge people in Keady to be vigilant and ask business owners to secure their premises as best they can.
“Businesses are finding it a hard enough time survive without these low lives preying on them.”
Anyone with any information that can help is urged to contact police on 101.
