ATM thieves thwarted
There’s a lot of money involved, but thieves didn’t get any – they just made it into a movie.
Two men used a stolen pickup truck in an attempt to get at a Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union ATM by ramming their way through the main entrance of the Mall at Piccadilly at 5 a.m. Aug. 11.
The men were captured on the mall’s video surveillance equipment as they attempted unsuccessfully to remove the cash machine.
An RCMP forensic team has completed an examination of the scene. Police have secured the video and continue to investigate the attempted theft.
Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union officials say the ATM will be out of service until further notice due to the attempted theft.
An estimated cost for damage incurred by the mall or the ATM had not yet been calculated.
