ATM thefts in Spokane County
Spokane County deputies said in 2017 that a suspect tried to steal an ATM from the Wandermere Car Wash Plaza on North Division Street using a stolen forklift.
No money or personal information was stolen from the machine, but the man did cause $40,000 in damage to the bank and ATM.
In 2016, two men faced a long list of charges after Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies arrested them with what they said was a stolen truck, ATM machine and fork lift.
Court documents said the ATM machine that was once bolted down was ripped out of the concrete floor and later found smashed into pieces.
