A cash machine was ripped from the wall of a Sonning Common bank by thieves on Saturday.
Three men used gas canisters to loosen the machine in the attack at Natwest in Peppard Road about 4am. They then fled the scene in a dark-coloured Audi which was later spotted in Sedgewell Road.
Windows at the bank were smashed in the burglary and a large amount of cash is believed to have been taken.
Police remain at the scene.
