It is believed that the stolen machine was recovered at the Craigmore Way, south Belfast area.

The machine was stolen from the back of an ambulance in Belfast city centre while crew members attended to a patient.

South Belfast Area Commander Chief Inspector Robert Murdie said: "The male who is believed to have stolen the defibrillator is described as being in his late 30's, 6"0" tall, medium build, fair coloured hair and wearing a great hooded top with red writing on it.

"Police are appealing to anyone with information or who saw the incident to contact them at Musgrave Police Station on the non-emergency number 101."

There is some sad people in our society.Whoever stole it,i would say,hasn't got a clue what they are used for.Glad it was found.

Hopefully the psni will apprehend the culprit as he obviously didn't care whether someone was in need of it. A spell behind bars would obviously do this person no harm as he has no respect for anyone or anything.
