Investigation continues into a break-in at a building society

Posted on 3rd January 2017

We are investigating an attack on a cash point in Borrowash.

We were called to the Nationwide building society, in Victoria Avenue, shortly after 4am on Monday, January 2, by witnesses reporting a break-in.

Thieves had driven a 4x4 into the window of the building society in order to gain access to the cash machine.

The first officers on the scene saw people trying to drive away in an Audi A3 and a Transit van. The van reversed into a police car, causing minor injuries to the officers inside.

One of the officers got out and chased the van driver, but he climbed into the Audi and the car sped off toward Spondon.

We don’t believe the gang was successful in breaking into the cash machine. The two officers went to hospital for a check-up.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call us on 101, quoting reference 17000001380.

You can also call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
