The Co-op in Leavesden was targeted by thieves yet again. 

Police has cordoned off the area due to the significant amount of damage caused by the thieves who stole an unknown amount of money from the ATM. 

Pictures of the scene show the cash machine has been pulled out from the wall and the windows have been smashed. 

Police were called to the store on Aerodrome Way 2.11am on Thursday, June 13 to reports of an ATM burglary.

The Constabulary confirm a gas canister was used to open the machine, before making off in a white vehicle.

The store was targeted in January when thieves ram-raided their way into the store with a truck to steal cigarettes. 

Officers remain at the scene and enquiries are still ongoing.

There are no concerns around the integrity of the building at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to phone 101, quoting ISR 043 of June 13.
