ATM theft suspect arrested in Florida

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

LEON COUNTY,  GA (WALB) –A suspect in those bold ATM thefts at multiple convenience stores in south georgia and florida is now in jail.

US Marshals picked up 35-year-old Joel Cooper in Tallahassee this week.

Wakulla county sheriff's investigators had been looking for Cooper saying he was their primary person of interest for their October 8th ATM heist where deputies actually chased the bandits and fired shots.

Cooper was arrested charges including vehicle theft and possession of a firearm of a convicted felon.

But south georgia law enforcers say Cooper is linked to all the recent ATM thefts, five total in Thomas, Grady, and Mitchell counties.

They say they found evidence in Cooper's stolen vehicle that could link him to the string of stolen ATMS. As we all saw in the videos two men were involved in the bold breakins.

Investigators are still looking for the other guy.
