Thieves try to steal ATMs in Red Deer and Innisfail

RCMP investigate

RCMP are investigating attempted thefts of automated teller machines in both Red Deer and Innisfail on Wednesday morning.

A truck stolen out of Innisfail early in the morning was used in both attempts.

Shortly after 6:30 a.m, Innisfail RCMP responded to a report of an attempted ATM theft at the Boston Pizza. Surveillance video shows a truck reversing into the doors, then a suspect running into the restaurant. He fled when he saw that the ATM was empty.

At 8:07 a.m, the truck pulled up to the front of the Red Deer convenience store on Golden West Avenue. The passenger entered the store and attached a tow rope around the ATM. The tow rope snapped, and the suspects fled the scene empty-handed in the truck.

Red Deer RCMP located an abandoned blue Dodge Ram shortly afterward on 71th Street near 66th Avenue.

Anyone with information about these crimes, contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Innisfail RCMP at 403-227-3342. People can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
