Four arrested following attempted ATM robbery in Belfast

The trend continues.

Police have arrested four men following the attempted theft of an ATM at a service station in the Gilnahirk Road area of Belfast.


The incident took place on Friday morning at approximately 3am.

PSNI Detective Chief Superintendent Darren Evans said: "The four men, aged 30, 33, 37 and 41, have been arrested and are currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries."

"Police would ask anyone who observed any suspicious activity in the area or have information that may assist with the investigation to contact police on 101," Evans added.

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous.

More information about the incident will be released later on Friday.

Thieves have successfully struck ATMs in counties Antrim, Derry, Down, Fermanagh, and Tyrone, as examples of the crime increases.
