Police in Lurgan are reminding the public of the importance of contacting police immediately if they notice any suspicious activity in their local areas.
The reminder comes following a burglary and attempted burglary on Monday, May 12.
At 11.35 am the occupants of a house in Oakridge returned home to find three males attempting to gain entry to the rear of their house. The males made off without gaining entry.
In another incident entry was gained to a house in The Grange between the morning and 1.28pm. A number of rooms were ransacked and jewellery taken.
Inspector Ken Annett, Lurgan Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “I cannot stress enough the importance of contacting police when you notice anything out of the ordinary in your neighbourhood, whether that is suspicious vehicles or people acting in a suspicious manner. We would much rather take the time to check out an incident which turns out be regular than miss the opportunity to prevent or detect crime.
“It is also important for the public to know that the emergency 999 number should be used if you suspect a crime is ongoing. The quicker we can respond to a crime scene the more opportunity we have of finding those responsible.
“I would ask anyone with information about the two incidents above to contact us on the 101 non-emergency number.”
