They were arrested in the Crossgar area last night.

All six remain in custody and are being questioned by police.

Detective Inspector Trevor Stevenson told the Belfast Telegraph: “We believe the perpetrators cut the street lighting and alarm wires prior to forcing entry to the shop and were then on site for a number of hours.”
