Police appeal following theft of ATM machine in Rugby

Investigating officers are appealing for witnesses after an ATM machine was ripped out of a shop wall in Rugby.

The burglary occurred around 4.30am this morning (Wednesday, 1 November) at the Co-op convenience store on High Street, Hillmorton.

The offenders have used equipment to forcibly remove the cash machine, before making off in a blue Audi S5 with partial registration GJ65, in the direction of Crick.

A structural engineer was later called out to inspect the building, which will need to be made safe before the business can re-open.

Detective Sergeant Mark Greaves, of Warwickshire Police, said: "These offenders have made off with a significant quantity of cash, leaving a trail of destruction behind them.

"We are now working extremely hard to piece together exactly what occurred and find those responsible, and would urge anybody with information to contact us as soon as possible.

"In particular we are urging landowners to check their property for anything which may be connected to this incident and may have been dumped by the offenders as they left the scene. We would also like to speak to anybody who was in the area at the time of the offence and saw something which seemed suspicious or out of place."

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or has information that can identify the offenders. Please call Warwickshire Police on 101, quoting incident 38 of 1 November 2017.

Issued: 3.09pm, Wednesday 1 November 2017, Kieren Bodill, Corporate Communications
