Retail NI Condemns Dungiven ATM Robbery

Commenting on this morning’s latest ATM robbery on a Retail NI member in Dungiven Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“Words fail to describe my anger at another ATM robbery on one of our members”

‘Yet again a local independent retailer, who provides an invaluable service to the local community, is awakened from his sleep to be told his business is smashed up and ATM stolen”

“The gangsters behind these attacks are systematically targeting independent retailers. Our members in every part of Northern Ireland feel under siege, and are asking themselves if they will be next”

“I will be seeking an urgent meeting with the Chief Constable and the Chair of the Policing Board to discuss this crisis and what further can be done”

“Every resource possible must be given to the PSNI ATM task group to enable them to catch these criminal gangs”

“If these criminal gangs are not caught, much of rural Northern Ireland will be an ATM free zone, with people unable to access cash”
