HOMESTEAD, Fla., March 19 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said an ATM stolen from a bank in an early-morning burglary Friday was found in the bed of an abandoned pickup truck.
Miami-Dade Police said they responded to a burglar alarm at the Community Bank of Florida in Homestead just before 5 a.m. EDT and discovered a stolen backhoe near the drive-through lanes and an empty spot where there should have been an ATM, WSVN-TV, Miami, reported.
Police said the ATM was found less than a mile away in the bed of an abandoned pickup truck. They said the money inside the machine was untouched.
"Once these individuals obtained this ATM, they need the proper tools to get into the machine. These machines nowadays are stronger then ever, some are even equipped with GPS," Miami-Dade Police Detective Javier Baez said.
