Police have arrested a man in connection with an attempted theft from an ATM in Cheltenham in the early hours of yesterday morning, Thursday 7 September.
It followed a hunt of the area by officers after a report that an attempt was being made to break into the machine at around 1.15am.
A member of the public called to say they could see a group of three men attempting to steal from an ATM in Hewlett Road by using tools to break it open.
The group drove off in a blue BMW before police could arrive and the vehicle was later found abandoned.
Officers were joined by colleagues from the National Police Air Service to search the area and a 37-year-old man from Birmingham was located and arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary. He has since been bailed pending further enquiries.
