Police investigating the ramraid of an ATM in Nottinghamshire are urging the public to keep on the look out for suspicious activity, as they believe it may be linked to other recent cashpoint thefts in the region.
A telehandler digger was used to rip out the cash machine at the Sainsbury's on Bingham Lane in Cotgrave in the early hours of Monday 7 August.
The digger has been stolen from East Bridgford earlier on, and was used to smash the cashpoint out of the wall, before it was loaded on to a pickup truck and taken away.
Police say a white Audi saloon car was also seen at the location. The pick-up truck was found abandoned in a field in Kirby Bellars, Leicestershire, but the Audi has not yet been traced.
The officer investigating the theft said it followed a similar pattern to others across the region in recent weeks, and is asking people to report suspicious activity, such as construction vehicles being driven around in the middle of the night.
