Main article content
Police are investigating the attempted theft of a cash machine from inside a Spar shop in Sherburn-in-Elmet.
It happened at around 3am in the early hours of 5 October 2023 when the suspects broke into the shop on Low Street and attempted to drag the cash machine away using a vehicle.
The suspects left empty-handed a short time later, but caused extensive damage to the store and its contents.
It’s believed the suspects travelled to Sherburn from the direction of South Milford in a silver Vauxhall car, and approached the shop on foot prior to the break-in.
They then drove onto the pavement at the front of the store before attempting to steal the cash machine.
As part of their enquiries, officers are appealing to residents in Sherburn-in-Elmet, particularly those in the Low Street area, to check any doorbell footage for any suspicious activity including a small silver car passing by between 1am and 4am and for any suspicious people.
