A gang who stole an entire cashpoint from a holiday park near Wadebridge is jailed.

The three men from Merseyside ripped the ATM from the floor at St Minver.

They crowbarred their way into another at a caravan park in Helston, getting away with a "substantial amount" of money.

David Owens, aged 35, Shaun Ennis, aged 41, Kevin Caveney, aged 26, disabled the alarm systems at colleges, service stations, amusement parks and caravan sites before attacking the ATMs with heavy duty equipment.

Detectives scoured CCTV cameras stationed on the M5 going in and out of Cornwall and saw that a Renault Megane hired by Caveney had visited Cornwall on the evening of July 19th before being driven back past the camera along the M5.

All three are now serving twenty years in jail for a string of big money raids across the country.

Detective Inspector Michael Fraser from the North-West Regional Crime Unit said, "Today's convictions reflect the persistence of our officers to see that justice is served on offenders who travel the country carrying out crimes.
"The North West Regional Organised Crime Unit works hard with our partners and other forces to detect, prevent and bring offenders prepared to cross borders to commit crimes to justice.
