Police officers disturbed thieves trying to empty the ATM cash machine outside the Bishy Esso garage after a 999 call from a local resident
The police were alerted at around 1.30 am this morning (April 4) that the free standing ATM was under attack.
Officers from Eastleigh police quickly arrived at the scene to find that the ATM had been damaged and that the offenders had left tools at the scene. It appears that a vehicle was used in an attempt to remove the ATM.
Police seized a white Renault van which they believe was used by the suspects and was located nearby in Dutton Lane. Officers have been conducting house to house enquiries and reviewing CCTV.
