Shots Fired During the Attempted Theft of an ATM in Werris Creek

Police are appealing for information after an ATM was stolen in a ram raid in Werris Creek overnight.

Just before 2.30am this morning, police were called to the Werris Creek Bowling and Tennis Club on Henry Street after reports a ram raid was in progress.

A police officer’s vehicle was rammed by a Holden Rodeo ute when he attended the scene, forcing the officer to discharge a number of shots.

The ute fled, followed by police before being dumped on The Gap Road and the occupants fled into nearby bushland.

Despite a search, they were unable to be located.

The ute was seized and will be forensically examined.

A crime scene was established after inquiries revealed an ATM had been stolen from the club and officers from Oxley Police District have commenced an investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.

Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
