Detectives in Lurgan are actively investigating an aggravated burglary that took place in the Monroe Avenue area on Sunday, January 8th. They have made a renewed appeal for information about a vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects.
Detective Sergeant Stewart said: “Shortly before 6am on January 8th, it was reported that a number of masked men armed with weapons, including a pitchfork, had entered a house in the area demanding money. They rummaged through the house, before making off in a white car.
“The occupants, an older couple, did not report any physical injuries, but this was a terrifying and frightening ordeal for them which left them shaken.”
The investigation continues, and the police are keen to establish the movements and whereabouts of the vehicle. They are asking anyone who might have seen a vehicle matching the one in the image, or who might have dashcam, CCTV, or other video footage that could assist in the investigation, to contact the police.
