A stolen vehicle was used to ram raid Meeanee Hotel and steal its ATM on Tuesday morning.

A police spokesperson said a green Ford Courier was used to ram the front foyer entrance of the hotel on Meeanee Rd, near Napier, about 5.30am.

"An ATM machine was stolen, before the offenders left the scene in the Ford Courier, driving north along Willowbank Road towards Napier," police said.

"The vehicle, registration BJT604, had been stolen from Taradale overnight."

Police are searching for witnesses to the incident and would like to hear from anyone who was in the Meeanee area around the time of the ram raid, as well as anyone who may have seen the vehicle since.
