Attempted ATM Theft in Potomac (Photos & Video)

Montgomery County police are investigating an attempted theft at an ATM in Potomac.

According to police, at approximately 1:57 a.m. on May 7, police received a call from bank security personnel for an in-progress theft of an ATM at a Bank of America.

Security personnel, via surveillance cameras, were remotely watching the Bank of America located at 10217 Falls Road in Potomac (at the intersection of Falls Road and River Road). Police said security officers observed three subjects, wearing gloves and masks, attempting to steal a bank ATM.

When police arrived, officers located a backhoe and pick-up truck in the parking lot. The ATM, which had been removed from the bank wall, was still attached by chains to the backhoe and was suspended over the bed of the pick-up truck, police said. Investigators believe that the backhoe and truck are stolen and continue to investigate their statuses.
