The ATM bandits were back at it just before Christmas – this time in Athabasca. And again, they appear to have gotten away with it.
At about 5:40 a.m. on Dec. 24, police were called to Neighbours Pub. What they found upon arriving were a smashed front door and the automated teller machine gone. Security video images show two people in masks using a grey GMC truck to commit the theft. In the by-now-familiar scenario, they broke the glass, attached the ATM by a cable and ripped it out using the truck.
RCMP is asking anyone with information to contact Athabasca RCMP at 780-675-5122. If you want to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers is an option. The number there is 1-800-222-8477.
