Thieves steal Bank of Ireland ATM using digger

The hole left by the thieves in Sligo after they stole an ATM

Gardaí are appealing for information after thieves stole an entire ATM using a digger this morning.

Anyone who saw a white coloured lowloader drawing a Kamatsu digger near the Mountain road area of Tubbercurry and Lovers Lane between the hours of 6pm and 10pm on the 28th January 2014 is asked to come forward.
Also, anyone who may have seen a white Nissan vanette drawing a twin axle trailer in the Teeling Street area of Tubbercurry, between the hours of 4am and 6am on the 29th January 2014 should contact Ballymote Garda Station at 0719189500, any Garda Station, or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111.
Gardai are investigating after the Bank of Ireland ATM was nicked on Teeling St, Tubbercurry, Co Sligo at around 5.30am on Wednesday.
A mechanical digger made a hole in the wall of the bank and dug out the machine, which was then driven away on a trailer.
Gardai later recovered the ATM nearby and have sealed the scene of the crime off for an examination by forensic specialists.

The vanette, lowloader and digger were later found at Carrowneden, Coollaney, Co. Sligo.

A Bank of Ireland ATM was previously stolen using a digger in Tinahely, Co Wicklow in May 2011.
