Long condemns east Belfast armed robbery

Alliance Castlereagh Councillor Michael Long has condemned the armed robbery of a filling station on the Knock Road duel carriage on Tuesday morning. The armed robber, who fired a shot, made off with a cash box.

Cllr Michael Long said: “I am appalled at this robbery, especially given that a shot was fired by the robber. This shows the complete lack of respect for human life on behalf of this man.

“This must have been a very distressing situation for the staff members who had a gun pointed at them.

“I would urge anybody with any information about this armed robbery to contact the police. This man is obviously a very dangerous individual, so I hope that the police are able to take him off our streets quickly to face justice in the courts.”
