Ulster Unionist MLA Jo-Anne Dobson has condemned the spate of burglaries which have taken place in the Portadown area.
The Upper Bann representative said;
“I am absolutely disgusted to learn that twelve burglaries were committed in the space of three hours last night in Portadown.
I have been in touch with the local PSNI and at this early stage it would appear that no injuries have been sustained by householders, but this is cold comfort indeed to those families and individuals who have been left to pick up the pieces this morning."
"I utterly condemn the actions of these thieves and vandals, who obviously care little for the carnage and hurt which they leave in their wake. I would appeal to anyone who noticed suspicious activity in Portadown last night to contact the local PSNI to ensure those responsible are caught and to spare other families from this ordeal."
