Ulster Unionist MLA Danny Kennedy has expressed his concern at a recent spate of burglaries in the Mid Armagh area.
Mr Kennedy, who is his Party’s Westminster candidate for Newry & Armagh, said:
“There has been a spate of burglaries recently in the Mid-Armagh area, centred around Mountnorris and Glenanne.
“Homes have been targeted and last night saw an attempt to break into Mountnorris Primary School.
“The local community is quite understandably very concerned at the increase in crime in their local area.
“I have contacted the Principal of the Primary School to reassure her of the full support of the local community and I have also spoken with senior police commanders to seek additional resources to stamp this activity out.
“I urge anyone who sees any suspicious activity or who can help the Police to apprehend those responsible, to come forward immediately.”
