It is believed four males were involved and a quantity of cash and jewellery was stolen during the incidents at Crom Road, Lisnaskea, Station Road and Primrose Hill in Clogher. Attempted burglaries were carried out at Nuttfield Road, Brookeborough and Main Street in Augher.

“Enquiries are continuing and at this stage, but it is believed all the incidents are linked.”
