BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) – Surveillance video shows two people stealing an ATM early Monday morning in Bainbridge.
Investigators think the suspects who took off with the First Port City Bank ATM may be responsible for other ATM thefts in the area.
They believe the vehicle used to steal the machine may also be stolen. Now they're asking for your help to catch the criminals.
Just before 1 AM Monday, a truck pulled up to this stand alone ATM outside the Bainbridge YMCA. A masked man entered the building. And he left with quite the withdrawal.
"I didn't find out about it until I got in the inside," says John Dixon, a YMCA employee. "All I noticed when I pulled up was a bunch of law enforcement out there."
The missing ATM and an undisclosed amount of cash went unnoticed for about seven hours. A confused customer reported it to First Port City Bank.
"You know, I've heard of people doing it, just backing up a truck and breaking a window and just taking them all out," says Carrie McDonald who works the front desk at the YMCA. "But I didn't see no glass broken. I was like how did they get it out?"
The door is now locked and a sign directs customers to two other locations because of the missing ATM.
The stolen ATM was located just down the street from the Bainbridge Public Safety building.
"That was a brave person whoever did that," said Dixon.
McDonald agreed, "Just right down the street, the police station, that's kind of crazy and stupid."
An investigator working the case could not speak to us on camera because of the undercover work he does. But he did say his department is working with other agencies to catch the suspect who may be responsible for other ATM thefts in the area.
"I noticed they were out there doing fingerprints and stuff like that," explains McDonald. "I mean, you know I've heard of it happening, but it shocked me in Bainbridge."
Now investigators are hoping someone will recognize the man or vehicle in the surveillance video.
"He deserves to be locked up," says Dixon.
But first, he must be tracked down.
