Two men have been jailed for three years following an ATM ram raid at a McColl’s store in Cumbria.

The incident happened at the store on The Square in the village of Milnthorpe on 10 January.

Michael Campbell, 37, from Durham, and Jason Brazauskas, 30, from Bishop Auckland, stole a JCB and another vehicle, before stole the ATM.

Both men pleaded guilty to burglary, taking two vehicles without consent and criminal damage.

Cumbria Police detective inspector, Charlotte Nutter, said: “This was a crime that had a large impact on the community as it was such a visible and destructive incident.

“But we were able to catch these men soon after the burglary and the evidence of the investigation was such they have now pleaded guilty.

“We welcome the sentences handed out and hope they act as a strong deterrent to anybody thinking they can target Cumbria or carry out this type of crime.”

The incident followed a number of ATM ram raids across the UK.

  • Three years each? ……….out in 18months? …..what a pathetically low sentence!
