PSNI investigating latest ATM theft in Co. Derry

An investigation is underway into the latest theft of an ATM machine in the North.

It happened at a petrol station just outside Dungiven, County Derry, in the early hours of this morning.

The theft from the filling station on Feeny Road was reported to police just before 4:30am this morning.

A digger, believed to have been taken from a site a short distance away, was used to rip the machine from the wall at the side of the shop leaving substantial damage to the building.

A spokesperson from the PSNI reiterated that the key to stopping such crimes and getting ahead of the criminals involved is information from the public.

Detectives are urging anyone who saw anything suspicious, no matter how insignificant it may seem, in the days leading up to the incident to get in contact.
