ATM Stolen from Raleigh Fast-Food Restaurant

— Raleigh police are investigating the theft of an ATM from a restaurant early Wednesday morning.

Officers were dispatched to the Bojangles at 3301 S. Wilmington St. about 1:45 a.m., when they found the business had been broken into and the machine stolen.

A review of surveillance photos and evidence showed that a light-colored truck backed up to the business and a window was smashed, police said. After a chain was wrapped around the ATM, police said, the truck pulled the machine from the building and carried it from the scene.

Investigators said the truck might be an older model Dodge with a dent in its door. Surveillance cameras also captured an image of a man believed to be involved in the burglary.

Anyone with information that might assist the investigation of the case should call the Raleigh Police Department at 919-890-3555 or CrimeStoppers at 919-226-CRIME.

    soccermom- this is really pathetic! a friend of mine was just blocked because they made a comment that was not even close to a violation but yet some of these folks makes comments far worse.

    You're right NCcarguy! It's bad enough to commit such a crime....but to be driving around in that truck...well, maybe that's why he was stealing an ATM; maybe he needed the money for the downpayment of a new truck so he could take the POS one out back and put it out of its misery!

    WOW, can't believe I just got blocked because of using symbols INSTEAD of the actual curse word. Thanks to whoever thought THAT was offensive!

    nclover : I'm with you -- I read all of Maj T's comments and have no idea what he's talking about or where he's coming from -- maybe somewhere so far beyond left field that even a road map and a flashlight wouldn't get us there.
