Thieves who stole cash across High Wycombe, Marlow, Amersham and beyond by “trapping” notes at ATMs that unsuspecting victims tried to withdraw have been jailed, according to Bucks Free Press.

Sebastian Vizir, 35, and Lucian Martinica, 29, both from Harrow, used a device known as a ‘cash trap’ to steal funds from several cash machines across England between December 1, 2021, and February 1 this year.

The device was inserted into a cash machine’s dispenser, meaning that when unsuspecting members of the public tried to withdraw money, the notes were trapped inside.
