WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Officials with the Wichita Falls Police Department are still looking for suspects after recovering an ATM and a stolen vehicle used in an attempted burglary early Tuesday morning.

Authorities said the attempted ATM burglary occurred at 2:36 a.m. Tuesday, June 8 at Postel Family Credit Union on McNiel Avenue.

WFPD Sgt. Danny Wiggins said the suspects used a truck to pull the ATM from its place and onto the street.

The truck was later reported stolen.

WFPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Charlie Eipper said police located and recovered the ATM and the stolen truck later Tuesday morning.

Sgt. Eipper said the ATM appears to be fully intact, and it is believed no money was taken from the machine.
