No success for alleged robbers

A WOULD-BE thief spent two hours trying to saw his way into a shopping centre ATM, only to give up and leave empty handed.

Ipswich detectives are trying to identify a man who entered the food court area of the Orion Shopping Centre at Springfield in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Tolsher said the man walked into the food court, where a new ATM was installed only a week ago, carrying a battery-powered angle grinder.

"The ATM is positioned in an open access eatery at the shopping centre, so there was no break-in," Snr Sgt Tolsher said.

 

Anyone with information that could assist police in identifying the man should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
