Hingham Police are investigating an ATM break.

Police say that at 6 a.m. on November 28 a customer tried to use the ATM at the Anchor Plaza on Lincoln St. inside a small lobby beside Bruegger’s Bagel.

However when he inserted his card in the machine it became jammed.

It was then that he noticed a screwdriver on the floor and called police.

Officers discovered that the service door beside the ATM was forced open and that the wires in the service room were cut and that the rear of the ATM cut open and the cash stolen.

Police say the break took place in the overnight hours.

The ATM is visible to Lincoln Street (Route 3A) traffic and police are asking anyone who may have noticed any individuals or vehicles in the area at the time to contact Det. John Marquardt at 781-741-1443.

Information can also be submitted anonymously using the “Submit-A-Tip” link on the department’s homepage
