Police Investigate Attempted ATM Theft

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, May 7, 2013

At approximately 1:57 a.m. this morning, 911 received a call from bank security personnel for an in-progress theft of an ATM at a Bank of America.  Security personnel, via surveillance cameras, were remotely watching the Bank of America located at 10217 Falls Road in Potomac (at the intersection of Falls Road and River Road).  Security personnel observed three subjects, wearing gloves and masks, attempting to steal a stand alone ATM.

Police responded to the location.  Officers located a backhoe and pick-up truck in the parking lot.  The ATM, which had been removed from a concrete pad, was still attached by chains to the backhoe and was suspended over the bed of the pick-up truck.  Investigators believe that the backhoe and truck are stolen and continue to investigate their statuses.  The subjects had fled the scene prior to police arrival and were not located.  (It is unknown if the suspects fled on foot or fled in a vehicle).  Investigators are releasing bank surveillance photographs of the suspects.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about this crime or the suspects involved to please call the 2nd District Investigative Section at 301-657-0112.  Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or leave a Crime Solvers tip here.  Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest and/or indictment for this felony crime.
