Detectives are appealing for witnesses after the theft of cash, believed to be a five-figure sum, from an ATM on a forecourt in Bo’ness in Scotland.

The machine at the filling station on Dean Road was damaged and access gained to the contents sometime between 11pm and 11.40pm on Monday 22 November.

Enquiries are continuing to establish the quantity of cash stolen but it is estimated to be in five figures.

It is believed an orange van was used to break open the ATM before the contents were removed, and this van has since been recovered in the local area.

Two individuals were seen in the area dressed in dark clothing.

Detective inspector Craig Higgins said: “Our enquiries into the incident are ongoing and I would urge anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious activity is asked to get in touch.

“We would also be keen to speak to anyone who may have dashcam or private CCTV from the area around that time.

“Anyone who can help is asked to call 101, quoting incident 0185 of 23 November, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
