SPARKS, Nev. — Police in Northern Nevada are searching for two vehicles and thieves who used construction equipment to pry an automated teller machine from a credit union and haul it away.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that Sparks police were notified about 5 a.m. Sunday that someone operating a backhoe was removing an ATM from the Greater Nevada Credit Union and placing it in the back of a pickup.
Police said the cash machine was later found by hunters driving in the Winnemucca Ranch Road area.
Detective Lt. Pete Krall didn’t disclose whether the ATM had been looted.
Authorities said a green Granite Construction Co. truck and a white flatbed truck with diagonal tail lights, chrome rails and bars protecting the back window drove away when police arrived.
