Over €400,000 recovered as part of investigation into foiled ATM theft in Virginia

Over €400,000 has been recovered as part of an investigation into an attempted ATM theft in Virginia.

This comes following further searches carried out by Gardai in County Meath last night.

Two men in their 30s, one with an address in Northern Ireland, were arrested following the searches yesterday and are being held at Kells Garda Station.

A 28 year old man was also arrested for money laundering offences and is detained at Navan Garda Station.

The cash seized was described as a “significant quantity”, with Gardai later confirming to Northern Sound News that it was worth just over €400,000.
These latest developments follow arrests in Virginia last week, when an attempt was made to rip an ATM from the wall of a hotel on Main Street

Three men were arrested on the day, one remains in custody while two were released without charge, with files being prepared for the DPP.

€300,000 and a number of vehicles were seized during planned searches in Moynalty, County Meath on the same day.

Investigations are ongoing.
