Mobile phone shop burglary ‘devastating effect on local business’

A huge haul of mobile phones and accessories have been stolen during a burglary in Co Armagh.

And the PSNI are warning the public to be on their guard as they believe, inevitably, the goods may be offered for sale.

The raid happened at a shop on Castle Lane in Lurgan, sometime overnight on Tuesday.

The PSNI in Craigavon took to Facebook to warn the public and hit out at those responsible.

They reported: “A large amount of mobile phones, accessories and stock have been stolen from the premises.

“This will have a devastating effect on a local business – at a time when many town centres need support.

“We are investigating this burglary and are very keen to find out where these phones have gone / will go to.

“Please Keep your ears and eyes open. If you hear or see anything suspicious relating to phones – please think about this burglary and tell us ASAP.”

The PSNI in Craigavon can be contacted using the non-emergency number 101.
