The PSNI in Newry and Mourne have revealed they are stepping up patrols in south Armagh, along with the help of colleagues in An Garda Siochana, in response to an increased number of burglaries which have been carried out in recent weeks on both sides of the border.

They police took to the PSNI Newry and Mourne Facebook page last week to confirm the increase in security and to offer assurances that they are working to keep people safe from this type of crime.

“Following a number of burglaries in the border area police on both sides of the border have stepped up patrols and have been working together to prevent, detect and deter criminality,” said a police spokesperson.
