Barkingside supermarket cash machines ripped out of wall using ‘stolen JCB’
Two cash machines at a Barkingside supermarket have been stolen using a JCB.
The machines at Tesco’s in Cranbrook Road were taken in the early hours of July 4 when the digger was used to pull them out of the wall.
An employee, who did not want to be named said: “They came through the back fence, drove through the car park and loaded them into a lorry after.”
A police spokesman said the JCB was stolen from a nearby school. The investigation is ongoing.
The wall has been bricked up, leaving the supermarket without any cashpoints.
