Gardaí are appealing to members of the public go be vigilant following a recent spate of ATM robberies. They are urging the public to contact Gardaí if they see any suspicious or unusual activity, particularly in the early morning in towns and villages across the country in particularly the movement of plant machinery, commercial 4 X 4 vehicles or pick-up trucks.
Gardaí are also appealing to anyone who owns or uses heavy plant machinery to please take every possible step to secure and immobilise your vehicles. Please ensure they are stored securely and not left in an area that is easily accessible overnight. If criminal groups cannot steal diggers and other similar machinery, they cannot tear out ATMs. This will also mean that these expensive pieces of machinery are not destroyed or burnt out after they are stolen
Gardaí are reminding the public to not assume somebody else has already made the call. You can also contact your local Garda Station, 999/112, Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or Crimestoppers on 1800 250 025.
