This brings a whole new meaning to “knocking over an ATM.”
Police in Winston-Salem, North Carolina are on the hunt for a man accused of first stealing an excavator from a nearby construction site, and then using it to drive off with an entire ATM and its contents.
According to WGHP Fox 8 , police responded to an ATM alarm call at Allegacy Federal Credit Union around 1 a.m. Monday.
After examining the crime scene and surveillance footage, police told Fox 8 that a man stole an excavator from a nearby construction site, drove it 200 yards to the credit union, knocked over the ATM using the excavator’s bucket and then scooped the 1-ton ATM into a getaway vehicle.
No word on the whereabouts of the excavator. A complete description of the suspect hasn’t yet been relesased, but police say he was a short man as he had trouble reaching the excavator’s controls.
