By Staff Reporter

Police have recovered a £6,000 defibrillator that was stolen from an ambulance in south Belfast on Wednesday night.

It was taken from the vehicle as the crew dealt with a patient at the Movie House cinema on the Dublin Road.

PSNI South Belfast Area Commander, Chief Inspector Robert Murdie, said: "At around 8.20pm, it was reported that a defibrillator was stolen as colleagues from Northern Ireland Ambulance Service attended a person in the area."

The defibrillator was found nearby in Craigmore Way in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Mr Murdie said the man believed to have stolen the defibrillator is described as being in his late 30s.

He was around 6ft tall, of medium build, with fair hair and wearing a grey hooded top with red writing on it.

"Police would appeal to anyone who saw this incident to contact them at Musgrave Police Station on the non-emergency number 101," he added.
