Appeal over attempted theft from Aberdeen ATM machine

Scene of the incident The attempted theft happened at an ATM in Oldmeldrum Road

The latest attack on a cash machine in Aberdeen may be linked to other ATM raids in the area, according to police.

A failed attempt was made on the machine at a TSB branch in Oldmeldrum Road at about 03:30.

Police want to speak to anyone who saw a dark-coloured car, possibly an Audi A6, with registration plate C3 KSJ.

They said those responsible could be staying in a local bed and breakfast, holiday lodge or caravan park, and they urged owners to be on the look-out.

Earlier this month, a 30-year-old man from Liverpool was charged in connection with a spate of raids on cash machines in Aberdeenshire, including incidents in Inverurie, Stonehaven and Ellon.
