Arrests made following Grimsby Road ATM attack

Arrests have been made following an attack on an ATM on Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes.

A man and a teenage boy are currently in police custody, and are assisting Humberside Police with their enquiries following an attempted ATM theft in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The attempted theft is the latest in a run of four incidents of this nature in North East Lincolnshire. Previous attacks on ATMs have included:

  • A shop on Cromwell Road, Grimsby, Thursday 5 March.
  • A petrol station on Cromwell Road, Grimsby, Friday 13 March.
  • A bank on St Peter’s Avenue, Cleethorpes, Saturday 22 March.

All of these events took place over the course of a few weeks.

Detective Inspector Tom Kelly said:

“Thankfully only one of the incidents has resulted in money being stolen, however we know the impact that offences of this nature can have for the local community who are often left without the use of the machine for some time as a result of such attacks.

I want to appeal to the public today to please be vigilant and report anything suspicious to us, particularly anyone that lives near a cash machine. We take all reports of this nature incredibly seriously, deploying officers quickly to secure any evidence.

I do want to thank everyone that has called in with information about the four incidents, your calls really do help us piece together the wider picture, helping us to make arrests.”

Enquiries are underway to establish if the reported incidents are connected, and detectives for Humberside Police are appealing to the public for any information that may help the investigations.
