Attempted ATM TheftThis is how quickly it can happen. Here is the surveillance video from the attempted ATM theft at CVS Pharmacy early this morning. Officers arrived within two minutes of being dispatched to the alarm but the suspects fled just before we got there – leaving behind the ATM and the stolen truck they used in the parking lot.There have been at least seven attempted ATM thefts in the Texarkana area in the last couple of weeks. Odds are that it is the same people responsible for all of them. Please help us by immediately calling 9-1-1 if you notice anything suspicious or out of the ordinary. We are more than willing to come check it out. Most of the time, it will wind up being nothing. But that one time that it is not is exactly the break we are looking for in this case.
