A thief made off with bank cards and money after being disturbed as he burgled a county Armagh home over the weekend.

Detectives are appealing for information following the report of a burglary at a house located in the Church Rock area of Camlough.

It was reported that between the 10pm and 10.30pm on Saturday, June 24, a male described as being in his 30s, of a slim build, with dark hair and wearing a denim jacket gained entry to a house in the Church Rock area of Camlough via a bedroom window.

The male suspect was then disturbed by the home owners and made off with several bank cards and a sum of money.

The home owners were not injured as a result of the break in but were left badly shaken.
