Shortly before 2pm on Tuesday 2 November 2021, police were called to reports of a robbery at a shop on Worthington Way, Wigan.
Three men created a small explosion to remove a cash machine from the premises.
The offenders subsequently fled the scene with money from the cash machine in a black Audi A3, which is believed to be stolen.
They made off in the direction of Hindley.
No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.
