Police searches in Killicomaine Estate, Portadown and Richill are a welcome development in the ongoing investigation to find those responsible for the recent robbery on Gilford Rd and arson attack in Richill.
Cllr Doug Beattie said: “It is my understanding that both crimes are related and the heavy police presence is because both firearms and drugs are thought to be involved.
“I commend the PSNI for their rapid and proactive investigation and actions to find, and hopefully arrest those involved in these particularly vile crimes.
“At the moment, I have been informed there has been one arrest.
“I would urge anyone with any information to contact PSNI Lurgan, or phone 101.”
