A mechanical digger was used by thieves to steal a cash machine from the wall of a shop in a Lincolnshire village, police said.
Officers were called to the Spar convenience store on the High Street in Caythorpe in the early hours of Friday.
The digger was left at the scene and it is believed that two masked men were behind the removal of the machine.
The street was cordoned off to allow investigations to take place. Police have appealed for witnesses.
