Police called to ATM theft after explosion

Police are investigating the theft of money from a cash machine in Rugby.

Officers were called to the scene at the Co-op in Cawston early yesterday, when a neighbour heard an explosion.

When they arrived, they found the ATM had been blown open and money taken from inside.

A witness described seeing two medium build males, dressed all in black, running very fast towards Bilton School and field carrying a white bin liner.

Officers arrived at 03.46hours to find the front window of the Co-op smashed and an explosive had been used to open the ATM. Significant non-structural damage was caused inside the shop and an unknown amount of money was stolen.

Officers investigating the theft, made an immediate search of the area in an attempt to locate the suspects and are appealing for witnesses who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously that could be connected to this incident.

Witnesses also report seeing a vehicle in the area of the Co-op at the time of the theft and officers are also appealing for witnesses who saw a blue Golf or a black Jeep driving at speed in or around the Rugby area containing 3-4 people that could have come from Cawston.

Any witnesses are please asked to contact DC 520 James in Rugby CID on 101 ext 6101. Information can also be provided anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
