Update on ATM stolen from Citizen's Bank

Posted by Ellen Krafve - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Some law enforcement officials spent the day watching surveillance video from the bank that had an ATM stolen early Tuesday morning. The "money machine" at the Citizen's State Bank on Highway 64 was ripped from its concrete base.

Officials say the suspect stole a backhoe from a nearby business, hotwired it, then drove to the bank to remove the ATM.

Law enforcement believe the suspect did not act alone, and is likely from the area.

"Compared to other ATM thefts that have occurred...this is not just a last minute 'I got to do this,'" said Sergeant Jim Whitham, with the Smith County Sheriff's Department.

Bank officials say no customer information was stored in the ATM. That is all collected on an off-site server.
