Fresno, California (KFSN) — Volunteers at a nonprofit in the Valley are frustrated and fed up after being targeted multiple times by impudent thieves over the past six months.

Security cameras caught a suspect stealing an entire ATM from Fresno Moose Lodge 445.

Two men can be seen walking around the Dakota and Chestnut buildings before 6am on a Friday morning.

They then drive the truck back to the glass door, smash the door open, and tear the entire ATM open.

Nearby operators recorded the man taking off and stopping to push the machine further into the pickup bed.

The lodge said the same individual broke in through a side gate in March and stole about 20 cases of beer.

Then, in May, thieves stole alcohol from behind a bar and one man ripped a jukebox out of the wall, they say.

Moose Lodge says what hurts most is that crime is affecting their ability to raise money.

They are currently collecting donations to send firefighters to the 911 Memorial, and their charity, called Moose Heart, helps provide higher education opportunities for local children.

“That’s the frustrating part. What I start to choke on is that they’re stealing from the kids. That’s a tough one to swallow,” says president Michael Boltz.

This latest crime came even after the nonprofit upgraded its security.

Police say they are aware of two incidents, but have yet to announce any potential suspects.
