Attempted ATM theft

Vernon RCMP are on the lookout for whoever attempted to relieve the local casino of its ATM machine.

Const. Kelly Brett says just after 4 a.m. Wednesday, police responded to a break and enter that had just occurred at Lake City Casino on Anderson Way. 

“Surveillance images of the incident show two male suspects as they smash through the front door, gaining access to the front lobby area, followed by an attempt to steal an ATM,” said Brett. “The theft was unsuccessful, and the thieves drove off empty handed, not before causing significant damage to casino property.”

The investigation is ongoing, and police released surveillance images Thursday in an effort to make an identification.

Suspect one is described as male, wearing a brown, hooded sweatshirt, jeans and white runners.

Suspect two is described as male, wearing a dark-coloured puffy jacket, black ski mask covering his face, dark-coloured pants and black runners with white soles.

They fled in a green Dodge Ram 1500 pickup with a canopy of similar colour. The canopy has a small sticker on the rear window, on the lower right hand side

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171 CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or leave a tip online at www.nokscrimestoppers.com.
