Northern Bank raid suspect released


02/12/2005 - 21:54:06

A man being questioned about the £26.5m (€39.18m) Northern Bank raid was tonight released without charge.

The 50-year-old from Carrickfergus, County Antrim was arrested in the latest in a series of raids by detectives investigating the robbery in Belfast last December.

Chris Ward (aged 24) from Poleglass, West Belfast, who was one of the Northern Bank staff members taken hostage by the gang, is still being detained.

Three men have already been charged over the biggest cash theft in both British and Irish history – one with the robbery itself.
