ATM stolen from Delia Credit Union, sus­pect sought

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Kyle Smylie

Around 3 a.m. on Tues­day, April 19 the lobby ATM at the Delia Moun­tain View Credit Union was stolen, but was later re­cov­ered along with a stolen truck used in the crime.

Drumheller RCMP say that the ATM was towed out of the bank lobby and dragged away, and later lo­cated stuck in a ditch on Range Road 17-4 ap­prox­i­mately 1 km out­side Delia. Also left with the ATM was a red F550 truck that was stolen from Trochu ear­lier in the morn­ing.

Video shows that one male sus­pect was wear­ing a black jacket with "Se­cu­rity" writ­ten in white on the left chest, with a black nose and mouth cov­er­ing that is com­monly worn by mo­tor­cy­clists. Video ev­i­dence also shows that the sus­pect was wear­ing red un­der­wear.

The sus­pect was un­able to get any money from the ATM.

“What we can as­sume is, be­cause our build­ings are well mon­i­tored with se­cu­rity sys­tems, and the Drumheller RCMP had such a good re­sponse time, the cur­rent be­lief is that the sirens be­ing close caused the thieves to just aban­don the ve­hi­cle and ATM be­cause they didn’t have time to do any­thing,” said Moun­tain View Credit Union's VP Oper­a­tions Brosinksky. “Cu­dos to the RCMP on their re­sponse time.”
