North Wales Police are appealing for information after thieves attempted to steal a cash machine from a petrol station forecourt.

Officers were called to the garage on Mold Road Caergwrle at 1.41am today August 24, following reports that four people of a white Nissan Navara were attempting to steal the cash machine. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The would-be thieves tied a rope around the stand-alone cash machine and then attached the rope to the vehicle in an attempt to dislodge it. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
