New Deer RBS ATM theft probed in Aberdeenshire

Police at scene Police are investigating the incident at New Deer

A fourth attack on a cash machine in the north east of Scotland in recent days is being probed by police.

Money was stolen as substantial damage was caused to the front of the RBS branch in New Deer's Main Street at about 04:00.

Cash machines were targeted in similar incidents in Oldmeldrum and Inverurie at the weekend.

A four-figure sum of damage was caused to the cash machine at a bank in Dyce last month.

Det Insp Norman Stevenson said: "We are following a number of lines of inquiry to establish the full set of circumstances surrounding this incident.

"We would like to appeal to people in the area who may have seen or heard anything around the time of the incident to contact the police as a matter of urgency.

"We are also interested to trace a dark-coloured saloon vehicle which may have been seen in the area around the time of the incident."
