Long condemns East Belfast armed robbery

Castlereagh Alliance Councillor Michael Long has condemned as despicable the robbery of a convenience store in East Belfast shortly before 7pm yesterday. A sum of money was taken from the till and two men made off along Ravenswood Crescent towards the Lower Braniel Road.

Cllr Michael Long said: “This was a despicable incident. I do not know how someone could ever bring themselves to carry out a crime like this. It must be horrific to be subjected to such a robbery and those involved must be swiftly brought to justice.

“The local community will be deeply shocked at this incident. Anyone with information on the robbery should contact police immediately.”
