A 57-year-old man who was also arrested has been released unconditionally.

The theft occurred on two ATMs from banks in the main street area of Dundalk overnight, in the early hours of today.

Two men have been refused bail after appearing in court over ATM thefts described as being like "a military operation".

They are charged with handling stolen property and possession of criminal property.

The lawyer told the court that a number of vehicles, including a van, a Mercedes and the pickup truck, were stolen from a house in Co.

The PSNI arrested three men in Crossmaglen after a cross-border pursuit involving a GardaĆ­ helicopter.

The ATMs were taken from Ulster Bank and AIB on Clanbrassil Street, around 3.15 on Saturday morning.
