Cash machine stolen from Highworth supermarket

Alert message sent 05/12/2018 11:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We're appealing for witnesses after an ATM was stolen from outside the Co-op in Highworth overnight. 

At approximately 1.15am today (05/12), unknown offenders using a JCB smashed through the wall with the cash machine in it and lifted it into a van.  The offenders then made off.

The ATM, which had been emptied, was later found abandoned at a hangar at Idstone and a van and Audi was found burnt out at Foxhill, near Liddington. 

Det Insp Paul Hacker said:  "We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a JCB being driven to the supermarket in Highworth possibly being closely followed by a car - this could have been an Audi.   
"Did you hear or see anything in the Highworth area in the early hours of this morning or anyone acting suspiciously before the incident - perhaps in the days leading up to the break-in?
"We'd also like to hear from anyone who may have seen the fire caused by the burning of the vehicles - perhaps you were passing and saw or heard people acting suspiciously and out of context for this quiet, rural area;  maybe a vehicle driving erratically too."

If you can help with our enquiries please contact Swindon CID on 101 quoting crime reference number 54180115068.  Alternatively, you can call anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
