We are appealing for witnesses or anyone who has mobile phone or dashcam footage after an ATM was taken from the Spar store, in Crowland.
It is believed that a telehandler was stolen from a nearby farm in the early hours of this morning (27 December) before it was driven to the store, on North Street, with a white flatbed van.
Offenders are then thought to have used the telehandler to ram the store and then lift the ATM onto the flat bed van before leaving the scene, in the Trinity Bridge direction.
It is believed that three or four suspects, all wearing dark clothing and balaclavas, were involved in the incident. Two are thought to have left the scene on foot and were possibly collected in another vehicle or had one parked nearby.
We received a call reporting the incident at 3.38am.
We have since recovered the telehandler but the van and ATM remain outstanding, and no arrests have yet been made.
If you saw a telehandler, unusually laden flatbed van or any vehicle parked or driving in a manner that caught your attention in the town during the early hours of this morning, spotted any suspicious activity or have any dashcam, doorbell, CCTV or mobile phone footage of the incident itself, please get in touch:
Call DC Emma Dodsworth on 07818 539016, quoting Incident 40 of 27 December.
