Angle grinder used in Weybridge station cashpoint theft attempt
A cash machine at Weybridge station was targeted by would-be thieves with an angle grinder last week.
The attempted theft happened just before 3am on Tuesday, March 4, and British Transport Police (BTP) have released an image of a man they want to speak to about the incident.
Detective Sergeant Dave Peek, investigating, said: “We believe the person, or people, responsible gained access by breaking a window to the station booking office and then proceeded to try to break into the back of the cash machine with an angle grinder.
“No money was stolen during the incident and the suspects did not succeed in breaking into the cash machine.
“However, a significant amount of damage was caused to the machine, as well as inconvenience to customers who were forced to use a side entrance to the station while the machine was out of action.”
Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward and are particularly interested in speaking to the man pictured.
Anyone with information should call BTP on 0800 405040 quoting incident LSA/B4 of 06/03/2014, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
