Money stolen from elderly lady at Lincoln cash machine

Lincolnshire Police are appealing to find a woman who allegedly stole an elderly woman’s cash at a Lincoln ATM.

At around 11.15am on Friday, September 5, an elderly lady used the ATM outside the Co-op pharmacy on Sincil Street.

She put her card in and requested £80, but when it failed to come out, she turned and spoke to a woman in the queue behind her before walking away.

It appears the money was slow coming out of the machine and the second woman then allegedly took the £80 before using the machine herself.

CCTV images of the woman suspected of taking the money have been revealed in order to aid with the appeal.

Officers are keen to talk to the woman pictured in connection with the enquiry.

Anyone who recognises the woman should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident 174 of September 5.

Alternatively people can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
