Brazen burglars stole a cash machine from a Carnforth supermarket.

Two people are suspected of taking the ATM from Booths on Scotland Road early on Monday, January 20.

Lancashire Police said at around 6.20am staff contacted officers to report that the supermarket had been broken into and the internal ATM had been stolen overnight.

Detectives are now appealing for witnesses and say the offenders 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, from Lancaster and Morecambe CID, 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 19/20 January 2014 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.”

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact Lancashire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting log number LC-20140120-0143.
