MP calls for police help to catch cashpoint crooks
13th April 2017
West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin has called for police help after a cash machine was stolen from the Post Office in Barnard's Green overnight.
Thieves caused serious damage to the popular post office and shop in Barnards Green when its cashpoint machine was removed from the shop frontage.
And this week, Kempsey post office saw its cash point machine return after a similar theft earlier in the year.
MP Harriett Baldwin today contacted West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion to discuss the issue and to call for resources to solve the spate of cashpoint thefts.
Harriett commented: "It looks like criminal gangs are targeting our area and think they can get away with this appalling crime.
"I have urged our Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion to ensure that the right resources are deployed to catch these violent criminals.
"I was in the Barnard's Green Post Office recently and know what a valuable resource the shop, the Post Office and the cashpoint are for the community..
"Jenny Cain works so hard to serve local residents at her successful business. I hope that the police can catch these crooks quickly."
