WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — The Wichita Falls Police Department said an ATM theft ring has struck again.
Police said the Union Square ATM in Parker Square is the latest to be broken into. Officers said a car was stolen early morning on August 27, 2020 and was used around 4:00 a.m. to rip the ATM open with a chain.
Officers who responded scrambled to pick up loose bills blowing around the parking lot. Police said cash drawers were removed and later located in the city. The stolen car was also found.
The crime is listed as a theft under $300,000 and police believe it could be tied to other ATM thefts recently in Texas and Oklahoma.
