Did you witness attemped theft from ATM in Lightwater?

Police VestSurrey Police is appealing for the public’s help following the attempted theft of cash from an ATM machine in Lightwater in the early hours of this morning (Saturday 12 July).

Three offenders wearing dark clothing, hoodies and masks attacked the machine at Barclays Bank in The Square at around 2.30am. It appears the gang used a tool to cause a small explosion in an attempt to gain access to money inside the machine before entering the bank itself through the front door.

They then made off towards the M3 motorway in what is believed to be a grey Audi TT.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who was in the Lightwater area or travelling through it in the early hours of this morning and witnessed any suspicious activity to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Jim Strugnell said: “The explosion would have caused a loud bang and I am appealing for anyone who was in the vicinity of The Square last night and saw either the three men or the grey Audi to come forward. I am also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the Audi travelling at speed towards the M3.”

Anyone with any information should contact Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference p14200927. The independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
