Armed robbers target cash van in Lisburn

Detectives are investigating an attempted robbery of cash from a van in Lisburn.

The incident happened in a carpark on the Knockmore Road, on Thursday,  June 15.

At approximately 6am, the occupants of the transit van were approached by three males, one of whom was brandishing a firearm, the PSNI said.

The three men, who were wearing scarves around their faces and had hoods up over their heads, demanded cash.

They fled the scene empty handed, however. Police believe they used a silver BMW, which was found abandoned a short time later in the Windermere area.

It is thought that the men then got into a second car, a grey BMW.

Detective Sergeant McIntosh appealed to anyone who may have seen either suspicious activity involving the silver in the Knockmore Road area or Windermere area this morning or the grey BMW leaving the Windermere area  to contact Detectives at Reactive and Organised Crime at Lisburn on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 164 15/06/17.
