Hingham detectives are investigating a break into an ATM machine in which cash was stolen.
On Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 6 a.m., a customer attempted to use the ATM machine in Anchor Plaza on Lincoln Street. The customer inserted his card in the machine and it became jammed. He then noticed a screwdriver on the floor and called police.
Officers found that the service door beside the ATM had been forced open. Inside the service room, wires had been cut and the rear of the machine cut open. An unspecified amount of cash was stolen.
This ATM is inside a small lobby beside Bruegger’s Bagel. The ATM is visible to Lincoln Street (Route 3A) traffic. The theft occurred sometime overnight.
