Thieves take ATM, but it falls out of getaway van
Lynnwood, Wash. — Snohomish County authorities say two thieves suspected of stealing an ATM machine from a business made it as far as the parking lot, but the machine fell out of the getaway van.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said Monday that deputies have recovered the ATM machine. They believe two men backed up a white van to a business near Lynnwood at around 11 a.m. Sunday, cut the cables to the ATM and loaded it in to the van.
Deputies believe the machine fell out of the van when the men drove too fast over a speed bump. The suspects drove away without it.
Deputies found the van idling Monday morning. It had been reported stolen from Kent. The van was impounded so deputies could look for evidence.
