Truck used to steal ATM in Thorsby

Edmonton Sun - - NEWS - Lisa JOHN­SON @re­por­trix

Po­lice are look­ing for thieves who tar­geted two atm ma­chines at two busi­nesses early Sun­day morn­ing in thorsby, about 70 km south­west of ed­mon­ton.

at about 4:30 a.m. Sun­day, rcmp were called to an alarm at the Vil­lage Su­per­mar­ket in thorsby, said an rcmp news re­lease.

be­fore po­lice ar­rived, a res­i­dent re­ported that they had heard a loud noise, looked out­side and saw that the thorsby esso gas sta­tion ap­peared to have been bro­ken into.

rcmp of­fi­cers ar­rived at the gas sta­tion first. cctv cameras show a sil­ver Ford F-350 truck with alu­minum rims backed up to the glass door of the busi­ness.

a man wear­ing a black hoody then broke the glass and en­tered the store where he at­tached a sling to the atm. the truck then drove for­ward, re­mov­ing the atm and caus­ing sig­nif­i­cant dam­age in the process.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors also dis­cov­ered that the Vil­lage Su­per­mar­ket had been bro­ken into in a sim­i­lar fash­ion and the thieves at­tempted to steal the atm from that busi­ness as well but were un­suc­cess­ful.

both busi­nesses will be closed for re­pairs as the in­ves­ti­ga­tion takes place.

Po­lice be­lieve that the F-350 may have bro­ken a tail light dur­ing the crime and had pre-ex­ist­ing dam­age on the driver’s side door.

they are ask­ing any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion to con­tact the thorsby de­tach­ment at 780-789-3951, crime Stop­pers at 1-800222-8477 (TIPS), on­line at www.p3tips.com or by us­ing the “P3 tips” app avail­able through the ap­ple app or Google Play Store.
