A ram raid on a store in Stotfold on Monday caused considerable damage according to Bedfordshire Police.

They are appealing for information after the raid at a Co-op store on Mulberry Close in Stotfold on Monday evening.

Between 10pm and 10.15pm, a grey BMW X5 and a grey BMW 118 were used to drive into the store, causing considerable damage, before the offenders attempted to remove the cash machine.

They left in a third car – a dark saloon – and headed in an unknown direction.

Detective Constable Joanne Barkat, from the force’s Serious and Complex crime unit, 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.”
