A CASH machine found by a member of the public in Mountfield is being examined by the police.
Detective Inspector Trevor Stevenson said: “We received a report yesterday evening, around 6.20pm, that an ATM machine had been located by a member of the public in the Barony Road area of Mountfield.
“The machine has been taken for examination and we are working with our colleagues in the banking industry to establish where the machine was taken from.”
Det Insp Stevenson thanked the “vigilant” member of public who made the discovery and reported it to police.
He said, “I would urge anyone who comes across anything suspicious, or out of the ordinary, to contact us on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1176 22/04/19.”
The detective added, “Alternatively information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100 per-cent anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
