Denman Prospect IGA is the latest store to be targeted in a ram raid but thieves have left empty-handed.
Around 2:25 am on Sunday morning (21 July), ACT Policing were called to the Denman Prospect shops following reports that a white Toyota Hilux had been used to force entry into a supermarket.
The thieves attempted to steal an ATM but were unsuccessful, leaving behind a sledgehammer.
It’s the latest in a string of ram-raids targeting Canberra businesses in recent weeks, with 18 other shops across the nation’s capital hit in ram raids since the start of the year.
Police are urging anyone who saw anything suspicious or anyone who has dash-cam footage or CCTV which captured a white Toyota Hilux in the area around the time of the incident, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
