Gang fails in ATM theft bid.
GARDAI are hunting a gang who tried to blow up an ATM in an early-morning raid.
However, the criminals failed to dislodge the machine and fled from the scene in Knocklyon Shopping Centre in South Dublin empty-handed.
It is the second time this year that raiders have attempted to dislodge a cash machine by flooding it with gas and blowing it off the wall. Gardai say the attempt to rob the ATM triggered an alarm, and added a "loud bang" was also heard.
When gardai arrived there was extensive damage caused to the machine but no cash had been taken.
This latest raid comes just three months after a gang used gas to blow a hole in an ATM at Ulster Bank in Enniscorthy, Co Wexford.
