Have you seen anything suspicious?

Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators from Humberside Police are still on the scene in Market Weighton, following what is believed to be theft of money from a cash machine.

Police were called at 4.10am today, (Friday 7th September 2018) following reports of a “large bang” at McColl’s newsagents in Market Place.

Detective Inspector Simon Vickers said: “Our investigation is in the very early stages but at this time we believe this to have been a targeted attack on the cash machine, with no risk to the wider public in the area.

“The offenders arrived in a red vehicle and broke into the store in order to access the cash machine.

“At this point, we do not know how much, if any, money was stolen.

“One of the men is said to have worn a blue jacket and orange gloves. The other wore a black jacket.

“We’re now working with our colleagues in neighbouring forces to trace the men and the vehicle.

“If you have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area over the past few weeks, or believe you have information that could help us, please call 101, quoting log number 51 of September 7.

“If you’d rather not give your name, you can also call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
