The telehandler had been stolen from a nearby farm and the Transit van had been stolen a few days earlier in Bingham. The cash machine was found by police in a field next to the A17 in Newark later the same day as its theft.

Luke Anderson, 29, from Newark, is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court tomorrow (Monday 22 June 2020) charged with the theft of a cash machine and conspiracy to steal motor vehicles – relating to the theft of a number of high-value vehicles between 28 August 2019 and 19 June 2020.

Detective Sergeant Rick Ellis, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Cash machine thefts often involve a degree of planning and numerous offences in the build-up, including the theft of vehicles.

“Not only do they cause disruption and heartache for the businesses affected but also for those whose vehicles are then used in a crime.

“Detectives have been working hard on this investigation and will now put one man before the courts. But the investigation continues and I would urge anyone with information to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 4 of 20 March 2020.”
