A sum of money has been stolen from an ATM machine at a shop located at a service station in Co Fermanagh.

The incident took place in the Lisnaskea area in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Police believe it occurred between 1am and 2am.

They received a report at around 6:50am that entry had been forced to shop located at a service station on the Moorlough Road.

Damage was caused to the shop till and a sum of money was stolen from an ATM machine located inside the shop.

There were a series of raids on ATM machines in Northern Ireland in late 2018 and the early part of this year.

Detective Inspector Trevor Stevenson made a number of appeals in relation to the incident.

"Were you in the Moorlough Road/Crom Road area during the early hours of this morning, between 1am and 2am? Did you see any suspicious activity, including anyone working at the roadside close to the premises on Moorlough Road between 1am and 2am this morning?," he said

“Did you see any vehicles in the area being driven in a suspicious manner around these times, or earlier in the week?"

Detective Inspector Stevenson urged businesses to remain alert to any suspicious activity and to report it to police.

“If you see or hear of any suspicious activity in your area; any strange vehicles in the area or anything out of the ordinary, or if you think there is a crime in progress, please, pick up the phone and call us," he said.

"If you have information which may assist our investigation, please call detectives in Omagh on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 215 of 13/05/19.

"Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime."
