Yesterday evening around 6:45pm a staff tip jar was stolen from the popular BayView Hotel in the seaside village of Portballintrae.
The hotel wasted no time in posting screen shots from their CCTV show the suspected culprits leaving the hotel.
A facebook post from the owner of the hotel, Trevor Kane, has now revealed that the suspects have been caught, reading,
“Great news everyone the scumbags were arrested in Magherafelt earlier today, thank you all who shared and helped to stop this trio from robbing other businesses!”
The hotel is a large employer in the area and also supports several local events including its support for Road Racing. This weekend the hotel will be supporting the annual Armoy Road Races, now in its 11th year.
