Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

OF­FEND­ERS used weld­ing equip­ment to try and break into a cash ma­chine.

Of­fi­cers were called to re­ports that crooks had at­tempted to break into the ATM at the Shell garage on Lon­don Road in Mac­cles­field in the early hours of Fri­day, March 3.

De­tec­tive Sergeant Si­mon Mills said it’s thought they used weld­ing equip­ment to try to get ac­cess to the safe in the ATM, but were un­suc­cess­ful.

He said: “This in­ves­ti­ga­tion is cur­rently in its early stages and we are fol­low­ing a num­ber of lines of en­quiry, in­clud­ing CCTV anal­y­sis and foren­sics.

“Lon­don Road is a busy road, and as part of this in­ves­ti­ga­tion I’m keen to hear from any­one who was in the area at the time of the in­ci­dent and be­lieves they may have wit­nessed any­thing sus­pi­cious.”

The in­ci­dent hap­pened at around 1.50am. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Cheshire po­lice on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 47 of March 3 or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
