Police have hit out following a "despicable" burglary at the home of a pensioner in Co Fermanagh.

The burglary happened sometime between 4.40pm and 5pm at a house in the Main Street area of the village of Lack on Tuesday.

A small amount of cash was taken in the incident.

A pensioner was inside the house at the time but was not injured.

PSNI Detective Constable Joanne Halliday said: “It is despicable that an older and vulnerable person should have been targeted in this way and we are appealing to anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the area to contact detectives on 101, quoting reference number 1036 of 30/04/19.”

Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
