Police probe latest ATM incident as Ellon targeted

An attempted theft at a cash machine in Ellon is being investigated by police.

The incident happened at the Clydesdale Bank in the Aberdeenshire town's Market Street in the early hours of Friday.

It came as police investigate five similar incidents in the north east of Scotland.

Officers are probing recent thefts in Bieldside, New Deer and Duffus, and attempts on machines in Oldmeldrum and Inverurie.

Det Insp Graeme Mackie said of the Ellon incident: "We are investigating damage to an ATM.

"We have dedicated officers looking into this matter and we will be keeping an open mind to see whether this attempted theft is connected to previous incidents."
