County Armagh primary school becomes latest target for burglars

A primary school has become the latest target for burglars in the mid-Armagh area.

There have been a number of burglaries recently in the area, centred around Mountnorris and Glenanne.

And Ulster Unionist MLA Danny Kennedy has asked for more police resources in the area.

Mr Kennedy, who is his Party’s Westminster candidate for Newry and Armagh, said: “Homes have been targeted and last night saw an attempt to break into Mountnorris Primary School.

“The local community is quite understandably very concerned at the increase in crime in their local area.

“I have contacted the principal of the primary school to reassure her of the full support of the local community and I have also spoken with senior police commanders to seek additional resources to stamp this activity out.

“I urge anyone who sees any suspicious activity or who can help the Police to apprehend those responsible, to come forward immediately.”
