“On the same day sometime between 12.30pm and 2pm a property in the Monaghan Road area of Middletown had entry forced to it but fortunately nothing was stolen.

“The last of these could have occurred anytime between 23-29 June when entry was forced into a property in the Ballindarragh Road area of Markethill and money along with jewellery stolen from it.
