Pair threatened with suspected firearm in Dungannon


A man and a woman were threatened with what was believed to have been a gun during a robbery.

They then fled with money and jewellery.

“The man and woman were left very badly shaken,” said police.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact Detectives at Cookstown on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1441 22/07/16.
