THE six people accused of the theft of an ATM machine at Trory have had the charges against them withdrawn.
On Monday, an application for the further detention of seized cash was made in regards £26,176 which was seized in Crossgar, Co Down, in relation to the ATM theft.
Dumitra Constantin (35), Nicola Cristian (37) and Radu Iancu (41) with their address listed as Maghaberry, Old Road, Ballinderry Upper, Lisburn failed to attend Enniskillen Magistrates Court on Monday.
Milan-Adrian Beidac (29) of Fortwilliam Grange, Belfast, Anita Petrovici (31) of Cliftonville Avenue, Belfast and Alus Statache (51) of Manor Park, Lisburn, were also listed but failed to attend.
The court heard that charges regarding the theft of stealing more than £61,000 from a cash machine at Trory outside Enniskillen had been withdrawn, and there was no prosecution of the six people accused.
After hearing oral evidence from the applicant, District Judge Michael Ranaghan ordered that the cash subject of this application be continued to be detained for a period of three months from the date of this order or until its release may be sooner directed.
Judge Ranaghan said that nobody had appeared at court for the defence and granted the order to retain the cash for up to three months.
