Hospital staff said the attempted theft of the machine by two men, who were travelling in a truck stolen earlier from a garage, was caught on CCTV.
Between 12.30am and 1am Friday, 2 September, the two men tried to remove the Butterfield Bank ATM from hospital’s public lobby, but did not manage to get it outside, police said.
They were travelling in a black Dodge Ram vehicle, number plate 138 237. The vehicle, which was stolen from the Red Gate Garage on Red Gate Road, George Town, sometime after 8pm Thursday evening, was still missing by late Friday afternoon.
Lizzette Yearwood, CEO of the Health Services Authority, said: “The individuals were unsuccessful in their attempt and the RCIPS, Butterfield and hospital staff are working closely together to investigate the incident.”
Butterfield has since removed the ATM from the premises.
“It is regrettable that the actions of these individuals will cause some inconvenience to those that use the services of the ATM, and we hope to have it fully functional again as soon as possible,” Ms Yearwood said.
