Re: Blundering ram raiders who escaped with an ATM machine containing £80,000 unaware it was fitted with a secret tracking device, have been jailed for a total of twenty years by Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court.<br />
The masked gang took the cash machine to a deserted farmhouse where a security monitoring company picked up its GPS signals.<br />
The money was being “divvied up” when police swooped to arrest the five gang members and seize a bin bag packed with £20 and £10 notes<br />
A jury was shown dramatic video of the gang reversing a 4X4 vehicle into a Valleys Co-op store in the early hours.<br />
Prosecutor Alex Greenwood said: “The peace of Treharris village was interrupted by an audacious criminal enterprise.<br />
“It was a highly-organised burglary to remove the ATM from the Co-op store.<br />
“A masked criminal gang reversed a Mitsubishi pick-up into the front of the shop. <br />
“Straps were attached to the machine and the pick-up drove off dragging it down the street with sparks flying off it.
