Bit of drama in Rothley




Cash machine ram-raid 'guts' Rothley Post Office


  • 1 hour ago



                       
A post office has been left "gutted" after a cash machine was torn out of the shop front during a ram-raid.
Rothley Post Office, which villagers said was due to close in four days, was targeted at about 03:40 GMT on Tuesday.
Leicestershire Police said a forklift-type vehicle - believed to have been stolen from a nearby building site - was used to smash the shop.
The suspects then made off with the machine in another vehicle, later found burned in a field in Belton, Rutland.
               
Commenting on the raid, a local coffee shop tweeted there were "unbelievable scenes" in the village, north of Leicester, saying the post office had been "gutted".
Police are appealing for witnesses.

Yeah I saw that earlier and made a comment on it on the Kardashian thread.

I forgot to put a link in so perhaps folk thought it was a spoof. Very Happy
