POLICE have confirmed the locations of the ATM machines targeted by a gang of thieves who have been jailed.

Last week, the Advertiser reported how the gang of five had been jailed for their part in a series of cash machine thefts between June 2017 and September 2018.

It is believed the group stole more than £1,000,000 and caused more than £200,000 worth of damage after they attacked ATMs in Droitwich, Malvern, Bromsgrove, Ludlow, Whitchurch and Tenbury Wells.

The group used specialist cutting equipment, stolen from fire stations, to force entry into stores and attack the cash machines.

Michael Solomon Stubbs, 32, of Asheridge Close, Wednesfield, has been sentenced to six years, eight months.

Noel Anthony Reilly, 39, of Wychall Lane, Birmingham, has been sentenced to seven years, six months.

Martin Steadman, 24, of Luce Road, Low Hill, Wolverhampton has been sentenced to seven years, six months.

Mohammed Maneer Khan, 31, of Great Hampton Street, Whitmore Reans, Wolverhampton has been sentenced to four years, ten months.

Marcus Burton, 33, of May Farm Close, Hollywood, Birmingham, has been sentenced to five years, 10 months.

Serious Crime Prevention orders were also granted against Steadman, Stubbs, Reilly and Burton.

These will place a number of restrictions on the defendants when they are released from prison and are designed to protect the public.
