Four men and a woman have been arrested and released on bail in connection with the theft of thousands of pounds of jewellery in Craigavon, County Armagh, last month.

Three men aged 52, 44 and 31 years and a woman aged 30 were arrested after searches in Coleraine, this week.

Police also arrested a man aged 29 years in the Craigavon area.

They said the arrests were related to a burglary at Moyraverty Road West, Craigavon, between 24 and 26 October.

They said a quantity of Pandora jewellery had been recovered.

The jewellery business Argento previously said £80,000 of stock was stolen in the incident.

Two men, aged 41 and 63 were arrested last month in connection with the theft. They were later released pending further inquiries.
