Alleged ‘old man mask’ ATM robbers have case adjourned

TWO men accused of wearing ‘old man masks’ during an armed robbery in which cash was taken as an ATM was being re-filled from a cash-in-transit van in Greysteel in March have had their cases further adjourned to June.

Dublin men Alan Carroll (38), of Island Key and Darren Redmond (25), of Caledon Road – both in the East Wall area of the city – are charged with robbing a security firm of money and possessing a firearm with intent to commit robbery on March 16 this year.

They were previously given bail and both appeared back in the dock at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Friday to be told that the target date for prosecutors to get the case file from police is mid-May.

“They are very serious charges,” a prosecutor said.

An earlier court had heard police received a report from G4S around noon on Saturday March 16 that one of their security vans had been robbed at gunpoint in Greysteel.

Two security guards had been held-up by two men with southern accents wearing “old man masks” and “brandishing a silver handgun”.

A police officer told the court the two security guards were refilling an ATM and one of the guards was pushed inside the ATM facility and “a gun held to the head” of the other guard.

An attempt was made to take money from the ATM and when told it was on a timer, one of the raiders then demanded that a guard opened a security box he had brought in from the van and money was then taken.

Money was placed in a black hold-all and the robbers ran off across a road, the court heard.
