Officers believe the people responsible could have spent up to six months digging

I believe it is in the region of 20 to 30 thousand, depending on the mix of notes in the machine.

I suppose if you've nothing better to do and digging around in the dirt and soil is your idea of fun for a hobby then yes I suppose it was possibly worth it - £6k is still £6k and if you found it on the street you wouldn't complain would you?
That said, there must be easier ways to make a few quid surely?

I Guess there are easier ways of making a few quid but there are less ways in the current climate.
Add any benefit payments to the 6k (no tax or Ni contributions to deduct) and it dosen't seem to bad.
