Two raids on ATM’s using a telehandler have occurred in Derbyshire.
The first incident, on Wednesday, August 2, took place at a Co-operative store in Kings Bromley. A masked gang attempted to steal an ATM machine using a JCB machine but were disturbed by cops. The JCB, which was stolen from a farm and had a telescopic handling arm for lifting heavy items, was left wedged in the side of the building and the gang fled in waiting vehicles.
In the second raid in Hatton, a stolen telehandler was used to steal a cash machine from a supermarket, with one raider throwing a metal bar at cops who tried to arrest them. The local feds were called to a Nisa supermarket, Thursday, August 3, as local snitches saw a vehicle, which had a telescopic arm, dragging a cash machine from the wall. The raiders put the machine in a trailer being pulled by a 4×4 before escaping.
So much for SmartWater stopping the ATM raids!
