Gardaí are investigating the theft of two ATMs from banks in the main street area of Dundalk that occurred overnight (April 4th).
Two vehicles were set alight at Dundalk Garda Station to “hinder” the Garda response to the incidents, according to a statement from An Garda Síochána.
The raiders were intercepted by members of the Garda Armed Support Unit and following a traffic pursuit, crossed the border into Northern Ireland.
“An Garda Siochana are working very closely with our colleagues in the PSNI. As this is an ongoing operation, no further information is being made available at this time.”
