The high powered luxury vehicles they stole for their revolving fleet were conservatively estimated to be worth more than £320,000 and were used to enable the gang, using false registration plates, to cause “untold damage and distress” to the rural communities whose cash machines they destroyed, he added.”It is clear from CCTV footage that each attack would involve about four people and a vehicle with a driver and potentially other people and vehicles nearby.”Between February 2015 and February last year there were 13 actual or attempted raids, eight of which were “gas attacks” and the other five “drag outs”.

The driver, Nanu Miah was arrested along with Andrew White, Cavanagh and Conroy.The other defendants, White’s brother Anthony, Michael Galea and Gary Carey had been arrested earlier during the crime campaign.Detective Chief Superintendent Chris Green, who heads up the North West Regional Crime Unit (TITAN), said: “This is the culmination of an extensive 12-month investigation into crimes involving thefts from cashpoint machines across and throughout the UK and a number of burglaries at residential properties.””These individuals believed they were untouchable and they used dangerous tactics in targeting ATM’s, which clearly put members of the public at risk. The techniques used by the men involved in these attacks were extremely risky and we are fortunate that no-one was hurt.” They drove at dangerously high speeds – once reaching 150 mph to escape police – on busy motorways and narrow country roads and the presence of the canisters turning their vehicles into “potential high speed mobile bombs”, according to prosecutor Ian Unsworth QC. Despite an officer pointing his firearm at the driver the gang reversed into the police vehicle and an officer used a shotgun to blow out one of the tyres. Andrew White led the gang who blew up cash machines across the country.Credit:BPM MEDIA In a plot akin to the Italian Job, a gang of criminals have toured the UK in high performance cars blowing up cash machines to steal more than half a million pounds.Using transporters to live in, the gang transformed trucks into “high speed mobile bombs” to hide their luxury getaway cars, which included Audi RS4’s, RS6’s and Mercedes A45, and deadly explosive devices.They were finally caught in a police shootout in Scotland.
