Bungled ATM raid


A MAN who attempted to steal money from an ATM in Cheltenham earlier this month is being sought by police.

The man parked his burgundy 2004 Grand Vitara XL7 wagon with no plates in front of a Bernard St supermarket about 3.30am.

He jemmied open the front door and then used an angle grinder to break into the ATM, which was inside the front door. The man fled empty-handed when police arrived.

He is described as in his 40s wearing shorts, a yellow fluoro top and a camouflage pattern floppy hat.

Police have released CCTV footage of a man they wish to interview.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers, 1800 333 000, or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au
