Two more vehicles believed to have been used by ATM ram raiders have been seized by police.
The cash machine was ripped from the wall of a supermarket in Tenterden early yesterday.
A gang used a JCB digger stolen from a nearby cricket club to attack the front of the Tesco store in Smallhythe Road.
The ATM was dumped unopened in the car park, pictured below, and the digger was abandoned at the scene.
Now detectives have revealed they have also seized a red pick-up Hilux truck found in Cranbrook Road and a green Daihatsu car.
Three men are believed to have been involved in the theft, which happened at around 2.25am.
The store was closed, but night staff working inside ran outside and witnessed the raid.
DC Don Share, from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: "The digger was stolen from the cricket club, which is close the supermarket.
"The thieves appear to have driven it up a bank and through a fence to get to the scene. In doing this they have caused a large amount of damage.
"Some witnesses filmed parts of the incident on their mobile phones and we are now examining this footage. If anyone has information that may be useful to this enquiry, please contact Kent Police."
