Dorset Thieves Target Cash Machine
7:42am 15th April 2014
A cash machine has been stolen in Charmouth.
Police say the ATM was at Newlands Holiday Park and was taken overnight last Tuesday.
The thieves used a stolen blue Mitsubishi L200 to remove it.
They believe the car was stolen on the same night.
Detective Sergeant Tom Isaac, of Western CID, said: "The stolen items were of a high value and their loss has caused a considerable amount of inconvenience and expense to the owners.
"We encourage owners of premises with ATMs to be vigilant and ensure that they have security precautions in place.
"Although the victim in this case had locked the car, we are also appealing to 4x4 owners in the area to be aware and ensure that their vehicles are secured.
"We are interested to hear from anyone who may have seen any suspicious behaviour in the area at the time of the incident, or have any other information that could help with our investigation."
