The shop in Mulberry Close was targeted between 10pm and 10.15pm by offenders who drove a grey BMW X5 and a grey BMW 118 into the store, causing considerable damage.

Offenders then attempted to remove the cash machine and left in a third car – a dark saloon – and headed in an unknown direction.

Dt Con Joanne Barkat said: “We believe there were up to five people involved and that the three cars were driven in convoy through Stotfold before arriving at the Co-op.

“We are keen to trace the people involved and would urge anyone who has any information about this incident to come forward.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC Barkat via 101 quoting Op Linhouse. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
