Police: 3 tried to steal Potomac ATM with backhoe

POTOMAC — Police in Montgomery County are looking for three people who they say tried to remove an ATM machine from a Potomac bank using a backhoe.

Police say the thieves tried to remove the machine from the Bank of America in the 10000 block of Falls Road around 2 a.m. Tuesday. They believe the thieves tried to wrap a steel chain around the ATM and remove it using a stolen backhoe. Surveillance camera video shows three suspects attempting to remove the machine from an outer wall and put it onto the bed of a pickup truck.

The group fled when police arrived. No money was stolen, but the ATM was damaged. The suspects were wearing dark clothing and white gloves.
