éirígí Newry Repeat Calls for Vigilance As Thefts Continue
Commenting on the most recent incident éirígí's Newry representative Stephen Murney explained "Residents from the Parkhead Crescent area of Newry contacted our party activists this morning [July 2] as they found they had items stolen from their property last night.
"The items include cast iron summer benches and even dog kennels. This comes after a spate of thefts over the space of a couple of months consisting mainly of petrol lawnmowers and strimmers along with other garden items."
Murney continued "The items the thieves are concentrating on can be quite expensive and we repeat our previous calls for residents to remain vigilant and to ensure their belongings and valuables are properly secured and safe.
"Over the past few months éirígí activists in Newry have stood with the Derrybeg and Carnagat communities against the scourge of anti-community activity. The thefts that have been taking place are very much part of this scourge of unwanted behaviour."
Concluding Murney said "If anyone has any information as to the whereabouts of the stolen items they can contact myself or any party activist."
