Officers continue to investigate Feltwell ram raid

Police are continuing to investigate following a ram raid at a store in Feltwell this morning (Monday 16 April).

Officers were called shortly after 3am to reports of a burglary at the One Stop Store and Post Office on High Street.

Suspects forced entry into the building and removed the cash machine from inside before loading it onto what is believed to be a small black vehicle.

Local Policing Commander for King’s Lynn, Superintendent Dave Buckley, said: "We are in the early stages of this investigation and would urge any witnesses or anyone with information to call police.

"What we do know is that suspects have thrown bricks at a number of houses causing damage after local residents tried to intervene. The offenders have then set light to a white Audi, which was being used in the incident, before fleeing the scene with the ATM.

"Thankfully, no one was injured, but clearly this has left the local community shaken. As a result, we will be carrying out extra patrols over the next few days in the area to provide reassurance."

The road was cordoned off while initial enquiries were conducted; however was lifted shortly before 12pm.

Witnesses should contact Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting reference 26 of Monday 16 April.
