CASH machine company offers £25,000 reward after failed ATM theft in Huntingdonshire village.

The Link Company has offered up to £25,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the ram-raiders who stole an ATM from the Nisa Store in Ermine Street, Papworth Everard, around 12.50am on Friday, May 18.

Four thieves used a stolen Landrover Defender to smash into the store before loading the ATM into a car, believed to be a green Subaru Forrester.

The offenders drove along the A1198 before dumping the ATM and the Subaru in Pyrecroft, Lower Cambourne.

Detective Sergeant Sarah Gaylor said: “We are keen to speak to anyone with any information about the offence or who is responsible.

“Hopefully the reward will encourage people to come forward to assist our investigation.”

The payment of the reward is subject to information being received and the validity of any claim will be determined by the company in conjunction with police.

Officers are keeping an open mind to whether this attempted theft is linked to others at the Duxford Imperial War Museum on May 30, Little Paxton on April 9, and Addenbrooke’s Hospital on March 9.

INFORMATION: Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
