Attempted cash point robbery in Vézénobres

France 3/Scoop, May 1

On Monday morning at 4am some criminals had the bright idea of setting fire to a vehicle in front of the police station to distract the police. They then used a tractor to try to break in to the cash point machine at the Carrefour supermarket in Vézenobres, near Alès.  

They couldn’t break in, so they decided to burn the tractor, leaving it in the middle of the road.

The police were duly distracted, and didn’t find out who the perpetrators were.

DNA samples have been taken to try to identify the criminals.
