Sledgehammer robbers smash into Spalding bank

Two people wearing balaclavas allegedly smashed their way into a bank in Spalding last night using sledgehammers before fleeing the scene with thousands of pounds.

The sledgehammers were used to break a glass door of the Nationwide Building Society in Hall Place in Spalding at around 9.50pm on Wednesday, October 24.

A G4S van was parked outside at the time but staff quickly closed their doors and no one was injured.

After breaking in to the building society, offenders took a cash cassette containing several thousand pounds and then left in a car driven by another person.

The vehicle, believed to be small and dark blue, clipped another as it left, and has damage to the driver’s side at the front.

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information, or who saw the vehicle, should contact police on 101 or via email at [email protected] quoting incident 428 of October 24.

It can also be reported anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
