SCSO recovers pickup truck used in attempt to open ATM

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -

Spokane County Sheriff’s officials say they have recovered a truck Thursday evening that they believe may have been used by a suspect who tried opening an ATM with a stolen forklift.

Authorities said the Ford F-150 was found in the area of Cozza and Nevada around 7:15 p.m. after someone called to report a suspicious vehicle in the area. 

The person who called it in said the truck resembled the one in surveillance photos released Thursday. 

A Spokane Police Officer arrived to inspect the truck, and quickly learned it  had been reported stolen on October 16 during a burglary at a business in West Spokane County.

Officials believe the truck was used while trying to steal an ATM. Security cameras show a man stealing the forklift around 3:20 a.m. Thursday from the Wandermere Car Wash Plaza on North Division.

Deputies say that a short time later someone saw the same person and white truck at the Banner Bank on East Hastings. Deputies say that it was there where he tried to steal the ATM by pulling it from the building with the pickup and forklift.

The sheriff’s office says no money or personal information was stolen from the machine, but the man did cause about $40,000 in damage to the bank and ATM.

The man was described as wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a green reflective vest.

Anyone who has information regarding this crime or can help locate the suspect is urged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
