Police have given the duo responsible for wrecking a life-saving defibrillator in Co Armagh a week to hand themselves in.

Or, failing that, they have threatened to circulate “beautifully clear” images of them across Facebook.

The PSNI’s Operation Exposure has had tremendous success in locating those police want to speak to in relation to a wide range of crimes.

The PSNI in Craigavon detailed the incident last month of how a defibrillator was ripped from the wall of the Spar Shop at William Street in Lurgan.

Officers threatened at that time to use increased resources and all means possible to find those responsible.

They have now started the clock ticking and urged the culprits to admit their crime before their faces go public.

The PSNI in Craigavon issued their ultimatum last night (Wednesday), via their Facebook page, when they advised: “Clear message time for the two guys involved in this: We have your faces. The CCTV is beautifully clear.

“It is now Wednesday evening, 7pm, and the enquiry office in Lurgan has just closed. You have ONE week from now. If by 7pm on Wednesday 15th November you haven’t handed yourself in, your face will appear as part of Op Exposure at 9am the following morning.

“The reference number is 430 of 22/10/17.

“Personally, I wouldn’t want to be the guy appearing publicly in an appeal about life saving equipment being damaged.

“As always though, your choice. Start the clock.

“Folks if you could share this widely, that dramatically increases the pressure on these guys. Let’s make it impossible not to hear this message.”
