Alliance Lisburn South representative Amanda Grehan has condemned those responsible for two burglaries in Lisburn on Friday night, which the Police believe may be linked. A family of four were locked in a room in their house on Laurelhill Road by four masked men. Jewellery and money was taken A pensioner was then bound and locked in his room in his house on Glenavy Road by two masked men, however nothing was taken. Nobody was injured in either crime.
Amanda Grehan said: “I am disgusted by those responsible for these burglaries. It is disgraceful that a pensioner was tied up and locked up in his own home. People should not have to worry about this sort of thing happening in their own home.
“While I am thankful that nobody was hurt during these crimes, I am sure it was a very traumatic experience for those involved.
“If anybody has any information about these burglaries then I would urge them to contact the Police.”
