Cash theft at Asda

A GRIEVING woman had £200 stolen from her bank account after she left her card in a supermarket cash machine.

Dorota Dabrowska, 35, withdrew some money from the cash machine at Asda in Dewsbury at around on Monday September 12. She put her card back in to print a statement, but accidentally left it in the machine when it asked her if she required another service and went shopping.

When Ms Dabrowska went to pay for her shopping, she realised she had left her card, but when she returned to the cash machine, it had gone.

Ms Dabrowska, of Moorcroft Road, Dewsbury Moor, rang her bank, who told her that £200 had been taken out of her account.

When security staff at Asda checked CCTV footage, they saw two men approach the ATM shortly after Ms Dabrowska left her card.

Ms Dabrowska is a registered nurse, but has been unable to work since the death of her mother at the end of last year.

She said: “I’m going through a difficult time, and now what has happened is terrible. I can’t believe I was so stupid.

“That £200 is my monthly income. I have to pay all my bills, but I don’t have any money.”

Ms Dabrowska urged the thieves to return the money to her.

She said: “They can do it anonymously.

“I just need my money back, because I don’t even have money for food.”

Police will view the CCTV footage taken at Asda over the next few days.
