Thieves steal ATM

Industrious thieves smashed a bobcat through the front doors of IGA Market Place in Okanagan Falls, stealing an ATM.

Penticton RCMP said at 2:55 a.m. on Monday they attended the store as a result of a security alarm going off. They found someone had used a skid steer loader (bobcat) to smash the front doors and remove the Royal Bank ATM situated in the store. Police said store video surveillance showed three suspects all wearing black hoodies, gloves and bandanas covering their faces.

Sgt. Rick Dellebuur said the ATM was loaded into a panel truck similar to the ones you can rent for moving. He said the panel truck departed the scene and was believed to have been followed by a white 14-foot flat-deck truck. The skid steer was left at the site and is believed to be stolen.

Anyone with information concerning this theft or the skid steer loader is asked to contact Penticton RCMP or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
