Ram-raiders steal ATM from arcade
RAM-RAIDERS have stolen an ATM from a shopping arcade in the Blue Mountains early today (Wednesday), police say.
A stolen pantech truck was reversed into the front entrance of a shop front on Govetts Leap Road in Blackheath about 1:20am.
CCTV footage captured the driver getting out of the vehicle and forcing the shop’s doors.
The truck was then used to dislodge the ATM.
A second person, driving a stolen Nissan Urvan, is then believed to have assisted the truck driver in loading the ATM into the van, police say.
They then fled the scene, dumping the pantech 50m away.
Police say they would like to speak with anyone who saw people acting suspiciously in Blackheath last night (Tuesday) or in the early hours of this morning.
The van used in the incident has not been located.
It is a white 1985 Nissan Urvan (New South Wales registration plates AR 50 PN) with blue stripes along each side.
It also features green curtains and damage to the tailgate.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact Katoomba Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
