Gardaí in Sligo are appealing for information after an ATM machine was pulled from the wall of a bank.

It is understood a digger was used to take the machine from the Bank of Ireland on Teeling Street at around 5am.

The ATM, which was intact, a vanette, lowloader and digger were later recovered at Carrowneden, Coollaney, Co. Sligo

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who may have seen a white coloured, lowloader drawing a Kamatsu digger near the Mountain road area of Tubbercurry and an area known locally as Lovers Lane between the hours of 6pm and 10pm last night.

Also, they are looking for 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 this morning.

Both scenes have been forensically examined and anyone with any information is asked to contact Ballymote Garda Station at 0719189500, any Garda Station, or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111.
