Calls for vigilance after cars broken into at south Armagh health centre

A number of parked cars were broken into at a south Armagh health centre earlier this week.

The cars were targeted – some of which had their windows down – at the Fords Cross and Crossmaglen Health Centre on Wednesday.

A substantial sum of cash was taken from a car parked beside the Health Centre.

SDLP Slieve Gullion Councillor Pete Byrne has urged people to take extra care and remove valuables from their vehicles.

“Following the recent appeals from the PSNI for information about the unconnected break ins at Fords Cross and Crossmaglen Health Centre, I would urge people to be more aware of valuable items including cash being left in cars,” he said.

“If these items are in anyway on display, then they make easy pickings for thieves.

“Especially during the warm weather, we are currently in the habit of leaving our windows down to avoid the blistering heat.

“Make sure you carry any valuables or leave them at home. Again, if anyone has any information regarding the two incidents, please contact the PSNI.”

Police are appealing for help from the public regarding Wednesday’s incidents.

They are especially interested in a southern registered Grey Audi A4 Estate which was seen leaving the scene heading in the direction of Newtownhamilton.

Anyone who can help should ring 101 quoting reference number 902 27/06/18.
