Thieves have stolen an ATM machine during a burglary at a supermarket.

Around 6.20am on Monday, January 20, staff at Booths supermarket in Scotland Road, Carnforth, contacted police reporting they had been broken into and the internal ATM had been stolen overnight.

Police believe two people are responsible for carrying out the burglary and they are known to have been in the Carnforth area from around 1am to 4.30am on the morning of the offence.

Detective Sergeant Mark Stephens said: “It is possible that the offenders have been in the area prior to 1am and I would ask members of the public if they have seen any suspicious activity overnight on January 19/20 in Carnforth to contact police.

“The offenders were wearing hoodies with their faces covered, possibly with scarves.

“It is believed that they left the scene in a light coloured Volvo estate.”

Call the police on 101.
