Durham police investigate another cash point robbery

Durham Police are dealing with yet another cash point robbery.

An external cash machine was targeted at a Post Office in Langley Park at around quarter to 4 this morning. (March 5)

It's believed the suspects used a stolen Red Ford Fiesta, a stolen Ford Transit van and a New Holland JCB type tractor to travel to Langley Park.

They have attempted to remove a cash point built into the wall of the post office on Quebec Street.

After failing in their efforts, the suspects made off towards Quebec Village.

A spokesperson, from Durham Constabulary said:

"Nobody was injured during the incident. However, it has caused significant damage to the front of the post office."

"We would like to appeal to anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the Langley Park area in the early hours of this morning to come forward."

It is understood that the Transit and tractor were left at the scene.

Anyone with any information should call Durham Constabulary on 101, quoting incident number 25 of March 5.

Alternatively, information can be passed on to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

It's the third time in the space of 6 months a cash machine has been targeted following two robberies in Darlington.

On Valentine's Day a cash machine was blown up outside the Heron Foods store on Cockerton Green.

A similar incident happened in October last year, with a cash machine outside the Matalan shop on Neasham Road the target.
