Alarm bells ring for loud ATM raiders

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BUM­BLING gang of raiders were foiled by po­lice af­ter mak­ing so much noise dur­ing a break-in they failed to hear an ALARM go off.

The men were try­ing to steal a hole-in-the-wall in Manch­ester city cen­tre, us­ing power tools to drill and ham­mer their way through the side wall of a neigh­bour­ing mini mart.

But they made such a racket, a se­cu­rity alarm was trig­gered at the Sub­way store next door.

De­spite the alarm blar­ing out, the blag­gers failed to hear a thing and con­tin­ued ham­mer­ing a two foot wide hole in the wall to get at the ATM.

Of­fi­cers later found three men loi­ter­ing at the back of the shop but they man­aged to es­cape.

Det Con Tony Quince of Greater Manch­ester Po­lice said: “Thank­fully their ef­forts were in vain.”
