Thanks for the tips. That’s what the drive-up ATM at US Bank in The Junction looks like after someone went after it overnight. The police call log shows it was reported around 6:30 this morning; no other details available yet. This bank’s drive-up ATM has been targeted before; someone tried to steal it a year ago, and it was stolen in 2017 (with two people eventually arrested). If you have any information about this incident, the SPD report # is 23-93562.

    Hopefully they didn’t get any money.

    Good Lord! It is my understanding that you cannot get a large amount of money breaking apart an ATM. In the words of one of my favorite comedians, “Here’s your sign!”

      Bank branch ATMs can hold up to $200k. That’s definitely a lot of money. Where privately owned ATMs can hold a couple thousand.

    It seems odd that someone would destroy an ATM. I just put my card in and I can get more cash than I possibly could need since everything is going electronic. Maybe their card got stuck and they have anger management issues.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
