Police seek pair who stole dump truck, dragged away ATM

Associated Press

MOSCOW, Pa. — Police are searching for two people they say stole a dump truck from a housing development then used it to drag an automated teller machine out of a grocery store in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Police in Covington Township say the men attached a chain to the machine at Bill’s ShopRite grocery shortly before 2 a.m. Tuesday.

The theft, captured on surveillance video, shows the men were driving a truck from Thornhurst Country Club Estates. Officials there have confirmed the vehicle is a $70,000 plow and dump truck that was stolen sometime between 1 p.m. Monday and 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The stolen truck has since been recovered, as has part of the ATM.

Police haven’t said how much money was stolen. The men were wearing masks and heavier clothing with hoods.
