Police appeal after raiders try to steal ATM from filling station near Maidstone

Monday 19th February 2018

POLICE are hoping the public will be able to help trace two people who tried to steal a cash machine from Farthing Corner services off the M2 near junction 4 in the early hours of yesterday.

The would-be robbers attempted to remove the cashpoint from a wall at the filling station on the coast-bound carriageway at around 4.45am on Sunday (February 18).

The pair, believed to be males, were unsuccessful and left the scene in a vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call 01634 792209, quoting reference number 18-0219, or Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
