A weekend burglary at a community facility in Co Armagh has been condemned.

The break-in occurred at Mount Zion House at Edward Street in Lurgan in the early hours of Saturday.

The suspect was seen making off towards the Shankill area of the town.

DUP MLA Carla Lockhart said: "This is a disgusting attack on Mount Zion House and one I unreservedly condemn.

"The building for many years has been used as a safe, shared space for children, young people and various charities and businesses."

She urged anyone with information to contact police.
