SA Police appeal to public after CCTV captures men ramming a pay machine

Key points:

  • The two men can be seen trying to remove the machine with a drill, before ramming it with a car
  • The machine was located at Glynde, north-east of the city, a few hours after it was stolen
  • Police are asking anyone who recognises the men to contact Crime Stoppers

SA Police have appealed for help to locate two men who stole a pay machine from a car wash in Adelaide last year.

The men were filmed on CCTV attempting to remove the machine from a service station at Windsor Gardens, north-east of the city, around 7:30am on Wednesday, November 25.

Footage shows the men pulling into the station on North East Road before attempting to remove the car wash pay machine with a drill.

The pair then used a white Peugeot 206 sedan with fake numberplates to ram the machine until it became dislodged, before putting it in the car and driving away.

The emptied machine was located a few hours later on Scott Street, Glynde.

Police did not disclose how much money was in the machine when it was stolen.

The suspects are both of Caucasian appearance.

Police said one had a slim build with long, “scruffy” hair, and was wearing a cap with sunglasses, a surgical mask, jeans, t-shirt and thongs.

The second man had a large build and appeared to be aged in his late 30s, with a bald head.

He was wearing a black top, black shorts and sunglasses on the back of his neck.

Police have asked anyone who recognises either of the men to contact Crime Stoppers.
