CCTV: Stolen Bobcat Used In Very Slow ATM Theft

Police are on the hunt for audacious thieves who used a bobcat to steal an ATM in southern NSW.

At about 4.30 am on February 25, police were called to a shopping centre in Moama after reports of a bobcat smashing through the centre's doors.

CCTV vision shows the bobcat ramming through the glass doors and crashing into one ATM machine causing it to break apart.

As the bobcat tries to pick up the machine, it damages a second ATM beside it.

The stolen machine is then driven out of the centre, where a white ute is seen on another camera waiting outside.

The bobcat, which police believe to also be stolen, was abandoned outside the shopping centre.

Police established a crime scene and located a crowbar and a White Mitsubishi Triton ute believed to be relevant to the investigation.

The items are currently undergoing forensic examination as part of Strike Force Burrandoot, a joint operation by State Crime Command’s Robbery and Serious Crime Squad and Murray River Police District.
