Seattle police asking for public’s help in identifying suspects in string of ATM heists
SEATTLE -- Seattle police said Wednesday that detectives are working to track down a team of thieves that have targeted gas stations, convenience stores, Interbay golf course and a local burger chain in at least nine break-ins over the last two months. The latest theft was at a market on Eastlake Avenue East on November 26th. Surveillance video showed the heist. "A van pulls up. Two people get out. They run up to the door and they actually take a drill, drill through the lock so that they can enter the store. Next thing you'll see is there putting a chain around an ATM and then they're pulling it out the door and then you'll see them muscle the ATM into the stolen van and leave the area. We'd really like to catch these guys,” said Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.
