Police are appealing for witnesses following an attempted cash machine theft at the Co-op in Weaverham .
Officers received reports of an alarm going off and loud bangs at the convenience store in Northwich Road, about 12.50am on July 30.
On arrival police discovered an attempt had been made to access the store. Shutters had been damaged and forced open and the ATM machine had been damaged, but the thieves fled empty handed.
