SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say they have a “person of interest” in custody in connection with the theft of a North Side bank ATM.
They made the arrest within an hour or so of Monday morning’s theft.
Police were originally called to Chase Bank on the corner of Jones-Maltsberger Road and Thousand Oaks at around 3:45 a.m. regarding an ongoing robbery
When officers arrived, they noticed that the entire ATM had been taken from the bank’s drive-through.
They were able to follow a trail of skid marks in the grass and road and found the stolen machine down the road, still chained to a pickup truck.
It appears that the thieves drove the truck with the ATM trailing behind them.
Police say they received a tip about a second vehicle involved and later found that vehicle at an apartment complex across town on Jackson-Keller Road.
They took the driver of this vehicle into custody as a “person of interest”.
Officials said they were still looking for several other people in connection with the ATM theft.
