Ram raid nabs ATM

AN automatic teller machine containing a “quantity of cash” was snatched from Karingal Village Shopping Centre, early morning Wednesday 17 January. Detective Sergeant Paul Mealia, of Frankston CIU, said a vehicle, later identified as a fourwheel-drive ute, was driven through the sliding glass doors and down the central corridor at the centre, corner Ashleigh Avenue and Karingal Drive. The occupants somehow managed to seize the ATM at about 3.55am and make their escape. There are no security bollards outside the front doors. Detective Mealia said police are looking at CCTV footage and interviewing witnesses to garner further evidence. “Once we are able to validate all the evidence we will be in a better position to provide information,” he said.
