New photos released in ATM smash-and-grab at bank
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is investigating a smash-and-grab burglary at a bank in West Palm Beach.
Investigators believe someone used a box truck to smash into an ATM at Bank United on Okeechobee Boulevard just before 5 a.m. on Wednesday
After smashing into the ATM, investigators believe the burglars then used an F-250 pickup truck to drag the ATM away. While on Haverhill Road, the sheriff's office believes the ATM hit the pickup truck, causing the airbags to deploy. The crash caused the burglars to scatter, deputies said. Investigators described the individuals as three black, armed masked males. Deputies found the ATM intact.
The sheriff's office said the truck and pickup were reported stolen. Investigators released images of both vehicles. The sheriff's office believe the burglars stole the Ford F-250 from the parking lot of an industrial area along Gardens Road in Riviera Beach just after midnight. Deputies say the burglars drove the stolen pickup to Prospect Avenue in Riviera Beach where they stole the GMC box truck. The trio drove both vehicles to Bank United.
No one is in custody.
