Paramilitary group name scraped into car during criminal damage spree in Markethill

Police are investigating a number of incidents of criminal damage in Markethill at the weekend.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “The incidents are believed to have occurred after a band parade on the evening of Friday 3 June.”

In one instance a homeowner awoke on Saturday 4 June to find the fencing around his property had been ripped from the ground and thrown into a nearby field.

In another, the name of a paramilitary organisation was scraped into the paintwork of a Volvo car in Bunker Hill area.

Constable Mark Purdy said: “An alarming number of residents found damage outside their homes on Saturday morning and one lady even had her bike stolen.

“Causing wanton destruction to other people’s property is completely unacceptable. I am appealing to anyone who can help us identify the people involved to get in touch on 101.”
