Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a burglary in Scorton.
It occurred at just after 1.15am on Thursday 25 October 2012, when thieves used a black Nissan Navara to break into the village's Post Office before stealing the cash machine inside the property.
The Nissan was stolen from Patrick Brompton a short time earlier and has not yet been located.
The cash machine was recovered in the local area a few minutes after the burglary.
The three suspects were all wearing dark coloured trousers, bomber jackets and balaclavas.
Shortly before the burglary thieves made an unsuccessful attempt to steal a pick-up from a property in the Catterick Garrison area.
Officers believe that the thieves may be connected to a Ford Transit flatbed truck, with yellow markings on the sides, which has been seen in the area in recent weeks.
Detective Inspector Darrin Knight, of Northallerton CID, said: "I urge anyone who can help to identify those responsible for the burglary, or knows where the Nissan Navara is, to come forward and contact the police or Crimestoppers immediately.
"As it possible that the thieves who stole the Nissan also tried to steal the car in Catterick, I need to speak to anyone who believes that an attempt was made to steal their vehicle and ask them to get in touch straight away."
DI Knight added: "I would like to speak to anyone who has seen either the Ford flatbed or people acting suspiciously in the area recently, as they may have information that could help with this enquiry."
Anyone who can assist with this investigation is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, choose option 2 and ask for Northallerton CID. Alternatively information can be emailed to email@example.com.
Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 12120179783.
