Pin It

Thieves tried to steal a ATM cash machine from George Town Hospital.

The Butterfield ATM located in the lobby of the George Town hospital is currently out of service and will remain so until further notice.

“At around 2am on Friday 2nd September it was discovered that somebody tried to vandalise or remove the ATM from the hospital lobby” explained Lizzette Yearwood, CEO of the Health Services Authority. “The individuals were unsuccessful in their attempt and the RCIPS, Butterfield and Hospital Staff are working closely together to investigate the incident”. CCTV was in operation in that area and the incident was recorded.

“We would like to thank the RCIPS, the staff of Butterfield, and our own Hospital staff for their prompt and professional response to this unfortunate incident so that no hospital operations were affected”, said Lizzette Yearwood, HSA.  “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.”

Police say the gang used a black Dodge Ram car registration 138237 that had been stolen from Redgate Garage last week.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident at the hospital, the theft of the truck or its present whereabouts, should contact DC Lizzy Berns at George Town police station on 949-4222. Information can also be passed via the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).
