Front Loader Used to Steal ATM From Miami Bank


Surveillance video released Friday shows someone using a stolen front end loader and a stolen pickup truck to steal an ATM from a Miami bank last month, according to Miami-Dade police.

The theft occurred just before 5 a.m. March 18 at a bank at 24701 S. Dixie Highway.

Police said someone used the construction machine to remove the ATM and hauled it away with the pickup truck. Only scarred asphalt and broken cement were left behind.

The video shows it took several tries before the thieves got the ATM loaded onto the back of the white pickup truck.

Investigators have found the front end loader and the truck, both of which were stolen, and the ATM, police said.

No arrests have been made. Police said they hope releasing the surveillance video will generate some leads in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
