The Tigard Police Department is asking for the public’s help after an early-morning ATM theft.
At 3:15 a.m. on Monday, officers received several alarms coming from a freestanding Chase ATM in the 12100 block of SW Scholls Ferry Road. Responding officers saw the ATM had been ripped completely out of the ground.
At about the same time, witnesses at the Meadow Creek Apartments (12505 SW North Dakota Street) reported a Ford F350 dually driving through the parking lot with an ATM chained to the back of the truck. As the driver went through the parking lot, the ATM caused extensive damage, ripping out speed bumps and causing curbs to break apart, damaging at least one car.
When officers arrived, they found the Ford F350 ditched nearby, still running but with no one inside. A K-9 track was conducted but the suspect(s) were not immediately located.
Investigators are asking anyone who may have surveillance or cell phone video related to this case, information about the truck and/or it’s occupant(s), or who witnessed any part of this and has not yet spoken to an officer, to please email email@example.com or call 503-718-COPS.
