Borders police warning after Eyemouth cashline crime

POLICE in the Borders have issued a warning for people to be on their guard against cashline crooks, writes Bob Burgess.

It follows the discovery that a hole-in-the wall machine had been tampered with in Eyemouth.

Police say they found evidence of equipment being stuck to the underside lip above the screen of the Bank of Scotland machine in Manse Road.

They also found traces of glue surrounding the card slot of the automatic teller.

A spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police at Hawick said : “We would urge people when using cash machines to observe the frontage carefully


“If they see anything suspicious they should inform the bank or supermarket and contact the police immediately.”

There are no descriptions of the Eyemouth suspects but police want anyone who say anything suspicious to come forward.
