Montgomery County Police have released the above surveillance images of a brazen attempt this morning to steal an ATM from the Bank of America in Potomac.
Police say they received a call from bank security personnel at 1:57 a.m. for an in-progress theft. Those security officials watched remotely as crooks used a backhoe, which officials believe to be stolen, to rip the ATM from the wall of the bank at 10217 Falls Rd.
Police raced to the scene where they located the backhoe and a pick-up truck in the parking lot. The ATM, attached by chains to the backhoe, was hanging over the bed of the pick-up truck.
