Stolen Cars Used to Ram-Raid ATM
by: Australian Bollards on
CCTV cameras caught a group of thieves on Sunday morning as they ram-raided an ATM in Bangara, NSW.
The four offenders had previously stolen a Toyota Hilux from a nearby residential property and then proceeded to ram it into the Regional Australia Bank ATM on Maitland street at 3:30 AM on Sunday.
The group then damaged the bank’s front wall and entrance with the stolen flatbed ute while two of the thieves attempted to rip the ATM from the wall, but were unsuccessful.
Detectives and forensics are currently investigating the incident, but it is unknown if the perpetraitors will be caught or exactly how much damage the business sustained.
The Importance of Bollards For Your Business
