Police investigating another theft of ATM in small community

  • Mar. 1, 2016 5:00 a.m.

On Feb.  29, 2016, at 4:25 a.m. Thorsby RCMP were dispatched to an alarm at the Bank of Montreal.  Investigation revealed that earlier, a garbage truck had been stolen and was used to perpetrate the offence of breaking into the bank and stealing an ATM machine.

The garbage truck was later driven eastbound on Township 492 where it was abandoned.  The suspect left that area in what is believed to be a very clean, white, early 2000’s Chevrolet/GMC extended cab truck.

No one was in the bank at the time.

The RCMP are seeking public assistance in identifying either the male involved in this occurrence, or information on the truck.  This is the second ATM theft reported in Thorsby although it is not confirmed that these thefts are related.

If you have information about this, or any other investigation(s), please call the Thorsby RCMP at 780-789-3950, or call your local police detachment.  If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS (check your local Crime Stoppers [www.crimestoppers.ab.ca] for instructions).  You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest(s), the recovery of stolen property, and/or a seizure of illicit drugs, you may be eligible for a cash reward.
