Detectives investigating an attempted cashpoint theft in Redbridge are appealing for assistance in identifying a man they wish to speak to.

Police were called to a service station on Chigwell Road, Woodford Green, IG8 at approximately 04:10hrs on Thursday, 14 February.

A van with the words “The Best Things in Life” written on the side had reversed into the station’s forecourt and up to the ATM.

Three suspects with their faces covered jumped out of the vehicle and began attempting to steal the cashpoint. Their attempt was unsuccessful and they all made off in the van.

Detectives from the Met’s Flying Squad are investigating and have identified a man they believe was with the van prior to the offence. They would now like to speak to him in connection with their investigation.

Officers have made attempts to locate the individual, but are now requesting the assistance of the public.

Anyone who recognises the man in these images is asked to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting crime reference number 4403336/19.
