Telehandler raid

Telehandler raid

The raid underway note the accomplice with slings at the ready

14. July 2017 

Police have released CCTV footage of thieves using a telehandler to remove a cash machine from a bank in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, UK.

The clip from Monday morning shows a Bobcat T3571 telehandler being driven into the town centre, lining up in front of the building and then the operator telescopes the boom before charging at the building, and breaking through. He then struggles to recover the cash machine, repeatedly withdrawing the machine and trying again. 

At one point he nearly overturns the machine. A co-conspirator who has arrived with a pickup truck, pulls a web sling from the back of the truck, one assumes to lift the machine after the telehandler operator fails to get it on the forks. 

 It is believed that three vehicles in total were used in the robbery, including a dark coloured Audi and the silver pickup truck, with police appealing for anything that may help trace the criminals. Perhaps they should also be charged with operating a telehandler without the appropriate training?Have a safe weekend!Yes we know its not a Digger!  SOURCE:
