Police are looking for three suspects who used a stolen truck to rob an ATM at the Chase Bank in the 2600 block of S. Walnut Street, according to a press release from Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo Wednesday.
A maroon Ford F250 truck was reported stolen around 8:47 a.m. Monday, but the truck was used in an ATM robbery earlier that morning. The truck was left running after the suspects were done with it, and some money was left behind.
The release didn’t specify how much money was taken from the ATM or if that amount matched what was left in the vehicle. Amounts stolen in bank heists are typically not released to the public.
Here is the text of the release:
“On 12/13/2021 at approximately 4:12 a.m., officers responded to the Chase Bank at 2600 S Walnut Street in regards to a report of subjects damaging the ATM. Chase Security was the complainant and called Central Emergency Dispatch to report that they were watching subjects damage the ATM in the drive-thru banking area.
Upon the arrival of officers, the suspects had fled from the area in what was described by Chase Security as a maroon Ford pickup. Chase Security stated that three suspects could be seen on camera using pry bars and hammers damaging the ATM, then fleeing from the area with cash from the machine.
At approximately 8:47 a.m. that same day, a man called to report his maroon Ford F250 stolen from his driveway in the 2500 block of S Rogers Street. He stated that he had last seen his truck parked in his driveway around 11:00 p.m. the previous night and noticed it missing on 12/13 around 8:00 a.m.
At about the same time that the man was reporting his truck stolen, Dispatch received a call about a suspicious truck parked near the intersection of E Ridgeview Drive and S Brookside Drive.
The truck was reportedly running with the driver’s door open and there was cash laying near the open door. Video surveillance from the bank confirmed that the truck was indeed the truck used during the theft from the ATM and it was also confirmed to be the truck that was being reported as stolen.
The investigation remains ongoing as Detectives attempt to collect video surveillance from nearby businesses. The three individuals involved in the theft have not been identified at this time.
Further, I do not have any video or pictures to release and the investigation remains ongoing.”
