Cheltenham man attempted theft at local store with stolen digger

In the early hours of bank holiday Monday (May 31), a man attempted to break into a cash point adjoining McColl's convenience store on Coronation Square, Edinburgh Place, Cheltenham using a digger stolen from a local company.

Cheltenham-based O'Connor Plant received a call at 5am on bank holiday Monday (May 31) to alert them to the incident.

A spokesperson for Gloucestershire Constabulary said: "A 41-year-old man has been charged and remanded in custody following an incident in Coronation Square, Cheltenham yesterday (Monday).

Jamie Geisdorf, of Edinburgh Place, Cheltenham, has been charged with numerous offences and will appear at Cheltenham Magistrates Court this morning (Tuesday 1 June).

He was charged with burglary, attempted theft, aggravated vehicle taking, criminal damage and using a vehicle without insurance.

He will appear before magistrates later today."

In a tweet, a spokesperson for the company said the incident "still doesn't beat last year's bank holiday call, at 3am to say someone was trying to order a McDonalds drive thru while driving one of our dumpers..."
