Police charge man, 42, after filling station burglary

Detectives have charged a 42-year-old male with burglary with intent to steal and three counts of conspiracy to commit burglary with intent to steal.

The charges are in connection with a burglary at a filling station in Cullyhanna on Monday 9 July 2018 and conspiracy to burgle three other rural business locations.



Five men have already appeared in court on Saturday 4 August charged with a number of offences following a burglary in the Irvinestown area on Thursday 2 August.

Speaking to Newry Times, Detective Sergeant James Johnston said, “Police continue to investigate a series of burglaries at rural business locations, primarily filling stations, throughout Northern Ireland, at which ATMs have been forced open. 



“We suspect that a gang was involved in scouting these locations in the days before the burglary occurs. Whilst there have been recent successes against suspected members of this gang and persons remanded we would ask shop owners to remain vigilant and report any suspicious persons or vehicles seen around their premises during the day. 

“We would appeal for any member of the public with information on such incidents to contact the Detectives based in the CID at Ardmore, Newry PSNI Station, telephone 101 extension 35378 or 60025,” he added.
