An unknown amount of cash was stolen and a pickup truck was abandoned at the scene of a smash-and-grab theft of an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) at a Silvercreek Parkway N payday loan storefront.

Const. Buzz Dean of the Guelph Police Service said this is the second time in three months the Cashco Financial on Silvercreek has had its window smashed.

A previous unsuccessful break-in attempt at the same business was reported June 22, said Dean.

“The cash machine was taken this time,” said Dean.

City police responded Monday to a 4 a.m. alarm at the business, finding extensive damage to the building.

A 2006 Ford pickup truck abandoned at the scene was stolen from a Cambridge business and ‘had not yet been discovered as stolen’.

Guelph Police Service is asking anyone with information about this incident to call them at 519-824-1212 or to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
