Three men, including one from the Beccles area, have been arrested following a spate of burglaries in Suffolk which saw a cash machine dragged from a village post office in an early-morning ram raid.
Offenders forced entry to the post office in Fair Green, Glemsford, by using a stolen dark blue Toyota Hilux to reverse repeatedly in to the front of the building at around 4.30am on Sunday.
A stand-alone cash machine was then dragged out using a piece of rope before the thieves left the scene in a second vehicle, described as dark in colour.
It was later revealed a subpostmaster had tried to foil the ram raiders by throwing water over them and brandishing a hockey stick.
