BREAKING NEWS: Two arrests after bank ram raid

Have your say

TWO men have been arrested in connection with a ram raid on a bank in Wisbech, which happened on the same day as a similar attack on Barclays in Long Sutton.

The arrests were made by Cambridgeshire Police after they carried out a warrant at premises in Garden Lane, Wisbech, at about 7.30am today (Tuesday).

The men, aged 50 and 27, were arrested on suspicion of burglary and the younger man on suspicion of producing cannabis following the discovery of 14 cannabis plants.

Five men wearing balaclavas used a JCB to break into HSBC, in Cornhill, in the early hours of August 2.

Both men, from the Wisbech area, have been taken into custody at King’s Lynn.

Just minutes before the Wisbech burglary, in what police believe was a connected crime, ram raiders used a teleporter to smash a bank wall and steal the cashpoint from the Barclays branch in Market Place, Long Sutton.

Lincolnshire Police said they cannot confirm whether or not they intend to question the two men in relation to the Long Sutton burglary.
