A large scale creeper burglary investigation was led by the PSNI Crime Support Team

A man has been sent to prison following a number of creeper burglaries in the county Armagh area in 2014.

Ciaran McGuigan, 25, was sentenced to three years and eight months; one year and eight months imprisonment and two years on licence.

McGuigan was arrested following a number of creeper style burglaries in 2014 where a number of vehicles were stolen.

The raids took place over four-months at houses in Belfast, Crumlin, Holywood, Hillsborough, Portadown and Lurgan.

At one home both a Saab 95 and a Kia Rio were taken, and during a raid at another home McGuigan is took an Audi Avant and a Kia Sportage.

A large scale creeper burglary investigation was led by the PSNI Crime Support Team.

McGuigan targeted victims during the hours of darkness, some of whom were elderly and vulnerable.

Detective Constable Lyness said: “Police will continue in our efforts to make Northern Ireland a safer place to live and work by proactively investigating and arresting people involved in criminality.

“Ciaran McGuigan became involved in criminality and as a result is now in prison.

“The sentence handed to him at court should act as a deterrent to others.

“We will continue to actively seek out these individuals and bring them before the courts.”
