            Attempted theft of cash machine in Elstead
            AN attempt by thieves to tow away a cash machine from a local store 
in Elstead failed this morning (Tuesday, 26 February) when the tow bar of the 
get away car was ripped off in the bid to escape.

            The offenders smashed their way into the convenience store on The 
Green at 4.20am and put a heavy duty towing strap around the stand alone cash 
machine and attached it to the towing bar on a small red car. When the suspects 
got into the vehicle and drove away the tow bar was torn off and the cash 
machine was damaged but remained inside the shop. After the failed theft, the 
offenders made off at speed towards the A3 at Milford.

            Detective Constable Andy Skoglund investigating is appealing for 
anyone who may have seen a small red car in the vicinity of The Green to 
contact him with any details. He said: "I would urge any members of the public 
who may have information in relation to this crime, which caused more than 
£2,000 worth of damage to this local store which is an important community 
facility, to call me. Similarly if anyone spots the car – which is easily 
recognisable from the damage to its rear and tow bar – either abandoned or 
parked up locally, please call Surrey Police. You may have a detail which could 
help officers locate those responsible for this offence and bring them to 
justice. Crimes of this nature ultimately affect the whole community and in the 
current economic climate small shopkeepers find such incidents particularly 

            Neighbourhood Commander Inspector Tom Budd said: "This is an 
audacious crime which is distressing for the shop keepers and the 
neighbourhood. Incidents of this nature are extremely rare in the village and I 
would reassure people that the Safer Neighbourhood Team is aware and patrolling 
in the area.”

            Please contact Surrey Police with any information by calling 101 
and quoting reference WV/13/907. Alternatively the independent charity 
Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 088 555 111.
