CCTV appeal following attempted ATM theft in Hereford

West Mercia Police is continuing to investigate the attempted theft of an ATM on Ledbury Road in Hereford.

Officers were called at around 3.45am on Monday 21 May to reports of three men in balaclavas attempting to cut the machine at the Texaco garage.

They then left the scene. Nothing was stolen.

PC James Moore said: "We are urging anyone in the area who saw the vehicle in the CCTV image, during the early hours of Monday morning, to come forward. The vehicle was thought to be travelling along Ledbury Road or in the surrounding residential estate. It is believed to be a blue Audi S5 which may have substantial front end damage; it is possible that the vehicle registration plates may have been swapped.

He continued: "We want to reassure local residents that no-one was hurt during the incident and that there will continue to be a visible police presence in the area over the coming days as we continue our investigation."

Anyone with any information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 53 of 21/05/2018 or call Crime stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
