Georgetown police found the U-Haul later that night and the empty ATM was found in a field Monday. But who orchestrated such a complex crime? Crime Stoppers took the video in the hope someone could tell police who he was.
Georgetown police said they believe only one man was behind the crime. Detective Joey Valdez says the thief stole a forklift from a construction site near Stock Yards Bank & Trust on Showalter Drive and also drove the stolen U-Haul to the crime scene.
Surveillance video from multiple angles by the bank and the nearby Scott County Public Library shows the man locating the forklift then driving up in U-Haul around 3:30 a.m. on December 1.
He then used the forklift to ram the ATM, breaking the bolts that were attaching it to the ground. When it came loose, he tried to load it into the U-Haul, but the fork caught on the outside of the truck, causing the ATM to fall off and roll down a hill.
He is then seen, taking it off the library property, loading it into U-Haul, and driving away.
Police said it was clear their suspect was comfortable operating heavy machinery and was currently in possession of a lot of money. If you know someone who fits this description, Crime Stoppers wants to hear from you. Your calls cannot be tracked and you never have to leave your name or number.
