Detectives are appealing for information relating to two commercial burglaries in South Yorkshire during the early hours of this morning, Wednesday 18 July. The first burglary was reported at 1.15am, at a bank on King Street in Hoyland, Barnsley. An ATM was damaged during the incident but no money was taken. Four men were arrested on suspicion of burglary a short time later. A 30-year-old, 26-year-old, 20-year-old and a 21-year-old, all from Barnsley, are currently in police custody.
