Lurgan Photographer reunited with stolen items

By Allan Preston

A Lurgan photographer has been reunited with £10,000 worth of stolen equipment.

Kieran McAlinden had parked his car on the Eastway part of Craigavon yesterday afternoon when the theft occurred.

While his back was turned, the costly photography equipment was taken.

Remarkably, just before 10pm last night Mr McAlinden announced his property had been returned.

Posting online, he said: "Great, great news... Can't thank PSNI Craigavon enough as well as everyone on Facebook for sharing our posts. The amount of people offering me help and the lend of camera equipment has been unbelievable! All I care is that I have it back and can go to my work in the morning."

A spokesman for PSNI Craigavon said: "Great news tonight. Kieran is back in business. A genuine local talent able to carry on showing one of the many great sides of our wee district!"
