Daytona Beach - An employee and an accomplice are charged with the early morning theft of an Automatic Teller Machine from the Daytona-Beach News Journal building in Florida.
The employee, after finishing his shift, allegedly left the building and then returned, covered a video camera and proceeded to cut the wires and unbolt the ATM from the floor. Using a dolly of some sort the ATM was loaded onto a forklift and loaded onto the back of a News Journal van, it was alleged.
The employee Jamie Greene and his accomplice Nick Ordway reportedly managed to get the 685-pound ATM to a residence in South Daytona Beach where sparks were noticed coming from behind the house by a neighbor who notified police. When they arrived Greene informed Police Chief Mike Chitwood that the sparks were from fixing shelves.
The Daytona-Beach News Journal reports: “Investigators were able to follow clues to an overgrown area near Palm View Drive in Port Orange where they located the cash dispenser. The thieves tried but were unable to break into its cash box, which held $24,000, Chitwood said. Both men were booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on Monday night. Greene was being held on $3,000 bail; Ordway on $2,500, a booking officer said.”
In spite of the evidence Greene chose not to cooperate stating that he only borrowed the company van for a ride to get cigarettes.
