A man who disturbed burglars was locked in his own house by the intruders during one of two burglaries in the Greenview Gardens area of Portadown.
The first house was broken into sometime between 4.30 and 9.10pm on Monday night while the occupant was out. The house was rummaged through and items of jewellery taken.
In the second incident a man calling to another house in Greenview Gardens at 7.55pm disturbed three males inside the house. The males locked the man inside the house and then made off in the direction of the Brownstown Road.

The third was also around 5’8” tall, of stocky build wearing a grey hooded top and had dark stubble. The man was not injured and nothing has been reported stolen at this time.
