Ramraiders target Webbs but leave empty handed


The front of Webbs of Wychbold was badly damaged when ramraiders tried to drive a car into the building on Tuesday night. Nothing was stolen in the attempted raid.


The Bromsgrove Advertiser reported that the thieves failed in their attempt to steal a cash machine at around 11.30pm.


A red Toyota car, which was later discovered to be stolen, was said to be used in the ramraid. It was joined by two other vehicles - a dark-coloured saloon car and Vauxhall Astra van - and three men entered the shop.


Once inside, three suspects targeted the cash machine, but were unsuccessful and made off from the scene.


A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or has seen any suspicious activity earlier in the day.


"Please call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting 845s of November 28.”


The garden centre's main doors have been replaced with temporary doors and visitors were being asked to use an alternative door.
