Woman is tied up as firearms are stolen in Garvagh

By Staff Reporter

A woman has been tied up and locked in a bathroom by masked, crowbar-wielding raiders who broke in to a house and stole legally-held guns.

The PSNI said the woman, who is in her 20s, was left "badly shocked by her ordeal".

She was confronted by the three men who forced their way into a Co Londonderry house.

It happened in the Craigmore Road area of Garvagh, shortly before 6am on Saturday.

The thieves stole six legally held firearms and are believed to have then made their getaway in a vehicle.

Detective Inspector Bob Blemmings, who is investigating the aggravated burglary, is appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time, and who saw any suspicious activity, to contact CID in Coleraine or Crimestoppers.
