Farnham ram raid west st

Police have arrested a man in connection with the theft of an ATM from a Farnham bank.

The cash machine at Halifax in West Street in the town centre was targeted on August 17.

The front of the bank was damaged and a digger abandoned in front of it.

Police say a man in his 20s was taken into custody this morning.

They also say they are working with neighbouring police forces to find out if there is a link between ATM ram raids.

Waverley Borough Commander Inspector Gary Smith said:

"We know that crimes of this nature have caused considerable concern for the public, but I hope news of this arrest demonstrates that we are taking these attacks extremely seriously and making progress.

"Attacks on ATMs is a national issue and one affecting all forces at present.

"We are working hard with all of our neighbouring forces to ensure there is a joined up approach to catching offenders and establish if there are any links between crimes.

"We will keep you updated as and when there is new information to share, and in the meantime I appreciate your patience and understanding while these investigations continue."

Halifax said last month it was not reopening the Farnham branch - due to a change in the way people do their banking.
