Four men arrested in Banbridge on suspicion of fraud offences

It’s understood four men were involved in attempting a number of transactions in various stores but were refused each time. The four suspects then made off in a vehicle. A description of the car, a Vauxhall Astra, was obtained and a police ANPR Interceptor team was dispatched to assist local crews in locating it.

Detectives from CID are questioning the four men on suspicion of a number of fraud offences.
