Telehandler raid

14. July 2017 | Comments (3)

Police have released CCTV footage of thieves using a telehandler to remove a cash machine from a bank in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, UK.

The clip from Monday morning shows a Bobcat T3571 telehandler being driven into the town centre, lining up in front of the building and then the operator telescopes the boom before charging at the building, and breaking through. He then struggles to recover the cash machine, repeatedly withdrawing the machine and trying again.

At one point he nearly overturns the machine. A co-conspirator who has arrived with a pickup truck, pulls a web sling from the back of the truck, one assumes to lift the machine after the telehandler operator fails to get it on the forks.

It is believed that three vehicles in total were used in the robbery, including a dark coloured Audi and the silver pickup truck, with police appealing for anything that may help trace the criminals. Perhaps they should also be charged with operating a telehandler without the appropriate training?

Have a safe weekend!
Yes we know its not a Digger!

With my cynical hat on I note that perhaps the extortionate prices being charged by profiteering CPCS test centres for the blue card and NVQ is driving destitute plant operators to take desperate measures to obtain the cash..!!

Obviously untrained and no ticket, had the jockey been "above board", they will have successfully done the deed !!
