Burglars must face ‘full force of the law’

THE men who burgled the pensioner in her home need to be caught and jailed as soon as possible, said Upper Bann MLA Jo-Anne Dobson.

“Local people are understandably shocked about what happened to this lady and I would encourage them to heed the advice from police to be vigilant and take all basic precautions to secure their homes,” she said.

“It is an absolute disgrace that people cannot live in safety in their own homes.

“I have been in contact with the local police and would urge anyone who saw suspicious activity around Kenlis Place or the surrounding area on Thursday night to get in contact with Banbridge PSNI station to assist with their on-going investigation of this incident and help to put those responsible behind bars.”
