Detectives have issued a fresh appeal for information in relation to the theft of an ATM from a filling station on the Portadown Road, Richhill, just before Christmas on Tuesday December 20 2022.
Detective Inspector Sweeney said that shortly after 4.45am, on Tuesday, December 20, police received a report of suspicious activity in the area.
“On the arrival of officers, a digger was located on fire and a built in cash machine had been stolen from the premises, causing substantial damage to the building,” said the officer.
“Two men were observed wearing dark clothing as they placed the ATM into a trailer and then set fire to the digger before leaving in a white van towards the Portadown Road.”

“We are particularly appealing to any motorists or cyclists who may have captured any mobile phone or dash cam footage, or who may have any other information which could assist us with our enquiries, to contact us.
“The number to call is 101, quoting reference number 183 of 20/12/22.”
