PSNI investigating series of burglaries at shops and filling stations

Police are investigating a series of burglaries at shops and filling stations across the north.

Officers are looking at more than 15 incidents and believe the same gang may be responsible.

Rural premises are being targetted which sees criminals, breaking in and disabling security systems before using machinery to cut or break open internal ATMs.

The incidents are not limited to a particular area and have occurred as far apart as Enniskillen and Larne.

In a statement, the Police say enquiries to date would suggest an organised criminal gang is responsible for many of the burglaries and they are encouraging retailers to take some steps to minimise risk.
