The theft of an ATM ripped out of the wall of a shop this morning may be linked to a theft in Kirkby Underwood, Bourne.

Police were called to reports of the cash machine being attacked at the Co-Op in Sutton Bridge around 2.26am this morning (Tuesday 24 May).

When officers arrived they saw the cash machine had been stolen using a teleporter vehicle which had been left behind. Two further vehicles are believed to be involved and had left the scene, the vehicles a black Audi and a Green Pick Up Truck.

The stolen ATM was found in a rural location just to the East of Peterborough. The ATM was still intact, along with the green pick up truck. Both have been recovered for forensic tests.

Police are investigating the theft of a green Mitsubishi L200 from Kirkby Underwood, Bourne, and believe this is one of the vehicles used in this incident. Police also believe the theft of number plates from two vehicles in Woad Lane, Long Sutton, maybe connected.

Detective Inspector Dave Rimmer, from Spalding CID, said; “Due to the help of the public and the concerted joint efforts between Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire police we have stopped the offenders getting away with any money.

“The damage they cause is not to be underestimated and we will continue to investigate all of these offences to identify the suspects.

“It’s crucial to get the early calls from witnesses and as much detail as possible, so I appeal to anyone who thinks they saw anything suspicious activity or vehicles in area last night to get in touch.”

The Co-op is currently closed but Lincolnshire Co-op are working to get it open as soon as possible. The building will be subject to a safety assessment by South Holland District Council building and planning control.
