McAleer urges vigilance following Ballygawley burglaries
“Over the last number of days I’ve been made aware of a number of burglaries throughout Ballygawley. Those targeted include residents, pensioners and the local chemist.
“I would encourage local people to exercise vigilance and look out for their neighbours in the days ahead. In the run up to Christmas, the last thing any of us needs is to become the victim of a burglary. These callous thugs have targeted pensioners so it’s important that we all look out for vulnerable members of our community.
“I’ve spoken to police who believe that a gang from outside the area is responsible for the recent upsurge. I would encourage anyone who may have seen anything suspicious over the last few days to get in touch with the police as soon as possible.
