ATM stolen from Nor­folk gas sta­tion

The Hamilton Spectator - - Local -

PORT ROWAN — Pro­vin­cial po­lice in Nor­folk County are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter a pickup truck re­versed into a gas sta­tion dur­ing an ATM theft. The rob­bery took place Dec. 3 around 12:15 a.m. at an Esso gas sta­tion on Front Road in Port Rowan.

Po­lice say sus­pects gained en­try into the store and were un­suc­cess­ful in their at­tempts to re­move an ATM. They then used a pickup truck to re­verse into the store be­fore mak­ing off with the cash ma­chine. The truck caused thou­sands of dol­lars in dam­age. Po­lice later found it in a ditch.

In Hamilton, po­lice warned in April of a rash of ATM thefts in which sus­pects drove ve­hi­cles through store en­trances. OPP warned of a sim­i­lar in­ci­dent at a County of Brant gas sta­tion and at a Caledonia drug­store last month. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the Port Rowan in­ci­dent is asked to con­tact po­lice at 1-888310-1122.
