Gardaí are appealing for information in relation to a theft at the Applegreen filling station on the M1 motorway at Castlebellingham last Wednesday.

At around 4.30pm a Volkswagen Touran pulled up at the pumps with a male in his 20s who was wearing a grey t-shirt and grey tracksuit bottoms getting out of the back seat and entering the store.

It later transpired that the individual in question went into the staff area where he removed a wallet from a handbag. He then took cash from the wallet, leaving it and the bag behind.

He then returned to the vehicle which he filled with fuel before going back in to the store to pay with the stolen cash.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Ardee Garda Station on 041 6871130.
