ROCKFORD, Wash, — Officials with the Spokane County Investigative Task Force have a man in custody for burning an ATM at Banner Bank in Rockford in November 2017.
According to court documents, officials believe the suspect, Kirk Fisher-Fulton, 29, burned the area that dispenses money out of the ATM in order to steal money from the machine.
Documents show Fisher-Fulton pulled a torch from his backpack, lit the torch and burned the ATM. Bank employees estimate damages to be more than $10,000. Reports said based on security camera footage, Fisher-Fulton left the Banner Bank ATM without any money.
Court documents show, one week after the Banner Bank ATM was burned, Spokane Police Department officers arrested Fisher-Fulton for burning an ATM at the Numerica Credit Union on E. Lyons in Spokane, which was estimated to have $60,000 in damages.
At the scene, officers found items that matched descriptions of the suspect from the burned ATM in Rockford.
The suspect was booked into the Spokane County Jail in December for other charges, according to court documents, and his cell phone was collected as evidence.
Fisher-Fulton is facing multiple charges of second degree arson and first degree robbery. A criminal trial date is set for February 26 at 9:00 a.m.
