Pensioner targeted by thieves at Canterbury cash machine
Two CCTV images
of men police want to speak to after theft
A pensioner has been targeted by thieves who stole his bank card
while he was using a cash machine in Canterbury city centre.
The 71-year-old man was trying to withdraw money from the ATM at
HSBC in Marlowe Arcade when he was distracted by a man who told him
it was out of order and had just retained his own card.
When the victim turned around to recover his card, it had
gone and he presumed it had been swallowed by the machine.
But the man later discovered it had been stolen and used to
withdraw cash at other machines in the city.
Police believe the card was snatched from the machine while the
victim was being distracted.
They have now released CCTV images of men they
would like to speak to in relation to the alleged theft, which
happened on January 7.
Anyone who knows their identities should call PC Mark
Simpson on 101, quoting crime reference ZY/819/13.
