Dickson Condemns Petrol Station Robbery
Alliance East Antrim MLA, Stewart Dickson, has condemned an ‘appalling’ armed robbery that took place at a petrol station in Greenisland.
Two armed men with knives entered the petrol station on the Upper Road, late on Sunday evening. The pair threatened staff, stealing cash and cigarettes, before fleeing in a blue Rover 25.
They threatened staff forcing them to open the till. The pair then jumped over the counter removing cash from the till and taking a quantity of cigarettes.
Mr Dickson said: "It's really appalling to see this sort of violent robbery visited on an otherwise quiet part of Greenisland. My thoughts are with the staff who will have had a traumatic experience, all because of the reckless greed of others.
"I would urge anyone with information to urgently contact the PSNI on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, so we can bring these malicious individuals before a judge."
