Alleged theft of carwash ATM still under investigation
Clarenville RCMP say an investigation into the alleged theft of an ATM machine from Clarenville U-Wash is ongoing.
RCMP were called Oct. 26 regarding the incident, and surveillance footage of the alleged theft was posted to social media Oct. 29.
Also on Friday, Oct. 26, Clarenville RCMP also received a report of the theft of several thousands of dollars worth of first aid supplies from a vehicle in Clarenville.
In relation to the two investigations, RCMP conducted a traffic stop on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 27, and recovered a stolen St. Johns’ vehicle — a vehicle that matched the description of the vehicle used in the ATM theft. An examination by the RCMP Forensic Investigation Services yielded evidence that lead police to believe it had been used in the ATM theft.
The stolen first aid materials were recovered from a second vehicle, driven by a lone female occupant, that was stopped Monday evening, Oct. 29,
An adult male and female have been charged with possession of stolen property related to the stolen vehicle discovered on Saturday, and the same female was charged with possession of the stolen first aid supplies on Monday.
The male will attend provincial court in St. John’s in December, while the female will appear at Clarenville provincial court in January.
