Ram-raiders failed to break into a Peter­bor­ough cash de­posit build­ing be­fore set­ting a JCB tele­porter on fire and flee­ing the scene.

Of­fi­cers were called at 9.37pm on Tues­day evening to re­ports of a bur­glary at Loomis UK in Tre­sham Road, Or­ton South­gate.

A heavy duty tele­porter, thought to have been stolen from the Northamp­ton­shire area, was used to ram the side of the cash de­posit build­ing.

Three men were then seen to jump out of three ve­hi­cles, be­lieved to be Audis, but failed to gain en­try due to the build­ing’s se­condary bar­ri­ers.

The tele­porter was then set on fire at the scene and the fire ser­vice were called.

The of­fend­ers made off in a ve­hi­cle, again thought to be an Audi, to­wards the A1.

Noth­ing was stolen and there were no re­ported in­juries.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Dave Tay­lor said: “We are keen to speak to any­one in the area who may have seen any­thing sus­pi­cious around this time.

“We are par­tic­u­larly keen to trace any­one who may have any dash cam or CCTV footage they think may be of use to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“If any­one saw a heavy duty tele­porter be­ing driven any­where in the area, or trans­ported on the back of an­other ve­hi­cle, please do get in touch.”

Loomis UK de­clined to com­ment when con­tacted by the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to call DI Tay­lor on 101, quot­ing in­ci­dent 530 of Novem­ber 6.
