Police appeal for witnesses after ram raid at Duxford war museum
RAM raiders used a stolen vehicle to smash into the Imperial War Museum.
Offenders used the red Land Rover, which had been stolen from Cambridge on Sunday (May 27), to ram their way into the Visitor Centre in Duxford, before making off in another vehicle, believed to be an Alfa Romeo.
The three men, dressed in black and wearing balaclavas, left the Land Rover at the scene along with the ATM. Nothing was stolen. They then made off towards Royston.
The incident took place at 1.40am this morning (May 30).
Detective sergeant Sarah Gaylor, investigating, said: “I would urge anyone who saw either of these vehicles prior to the raid, or the Alfa Romeo afterwards, to call police.
“I have a team of officers investigating this incident and CCTV is being reviewed to try and find the offenders who did this.
“Forensic examinations are taking place at the Visitor Centre and on the vehicle, but I am keen to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area leading up to the incident.”
