Retail NI Condemns Attempted ATM Robbery on Ballynahinch Member

Retail NI has condemned an attempted ATM robbery this morning on one its members in Ballynahinch. The attack caused extensive damage to Carlisle’s, one of the town's major employers.

In addition, an ATM was stolen from Knockbracken Health centre and an unsuccessful attempt was also made to steal one at Belfast City Hospital.

Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“Words fail to describe my anger at this disgraceful attempted ATM robbery on one of our members. This has caused extensive damage to one of Ballynahinch’s largest retailers in the run up to Christmas”

‘This is an independent retailer, who provides an invaluable service to the local community, awakened from his sleep to be told his business is smashed up”

“It is also a new low for these robbers to attack health centres to steal ATMs"

“We would urge all businesses and organisations who have external ATMs to be vigilant and urge members of the public with any information to contact the PSNI”
