Tulsa police need your help to track down suspects targeting ATMs. Police have released a surveillance video showing several suspects using a white Ford F-150 truck to break an ATM. The theft occurred on Thursday at about 2:15 am outside the Communication Federal Credit Union on 31st Avenue and Sheridan.
“This is a very bold act by these individuals,” said TPD officer Andre Baul.
Police said the suspect could be involved in multiple ATM thefts. They said the truck used in the surveillance video was later recovered at Sand Springs after tracking.
“They were using a tow strap and tried to connect it to an ATM and then pull it out,” Baul said.
The thief on Wednesday morning targeted another ATM on the 61st and Yale. Police said they used a stolen truck to destroy an ATM.
Jayme Reitz is the owner of the stolen truck used in the crime.
“In fact, I didn’t know it was being used for crime. My mother called me at 5:30 in the morning,” says Reitz. “She said, where are you? How are you? … I said I’m okay, she said I’m working. She said, well, the police are just here. I was there and said your truck was just stolen, and she told me an armed robbery or robbery, and the police are looking for you. “
He said this was the second time his truck had been stolen, but this time he was surprised to learn that it was used in a crime.
“They tried to tie it to the back of the truck with a chain with a tow rope, hooked it into an ATM and pulled it out, and after they were done, they took the money, and they ran, and They ran and left the truck here. “
Police are especially vigilant and always ask you to lock your car.
“Always be careful, especially if you go to an ATM when it starts to be late at night. Be aware of your surroundings,” says Baul.
Police are still looking for the suspect.
They are looking for someone who has the information to contact Tulsa Crime Stopper or call 918-596-COPS.
