Sunday Life puts thug back behind bars

Sunday Life has helped put a dangerous criminal back behind bars.

Two weeks ago we teamed up with Shankill Road-based Pastor Jack McKee to appeal for on-the-run-robber Joe Lockhart to hand himself in.

The 35-year-old thug from the Ballysillan area of north Belfast did a bunk from Maghaberry Prison in January after being allowed out on two-day temporary release.

Cops did not have a clue where Lockhart was hiding and feared the longer he remained at large the more likely he would be to return to crime.

So Pastor Jack, the man who converted the former LVF boss to Christianity, used Sunday Life to plead with him to hand himself in.

For the full story, see this week's Sunday Life.
