Thieves flee empty handed after attempting to steal ATM

THIEVES fled empty handed after attempting to steal an ATM in Kenilworth.

They broke into the former Natwest Bank on Warwick Road and tried to remove the cash machine, which still dispenses cash to customers outside.

They struck at around 2.30am on Sunday (May 12) and the suspects were not able to remove the machine or any cash.

Police are keen to trace a Peugeot car with a registration ending ZHE.

Police spokesman Gareth Unett said: “While no arrests have been made, investigations are ongoing and we would really like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident and may have seen something suspicious.

“We would also be keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the Peugeot vehicle outside the premises or has any dashcam footage of the incident or the location in the early hours of this morning.”

Call police on 101 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 with any information.
