HEWITT, TX — Police are investigating the attempted theft of an ATM in Hewitt.

Early Tuesday morning, Waco PD patrol officers were sent to Chase Bank on Hewitt Drive regarding an ATM theft.

Once they arrived, they found the drive-thru ATM machine for Chase Bank laying in the parking lot with a pickup truck and chain attached to it.

Officers later learned that the truck was stolen out of Hewitt. The owners of the truck were notified. At the time, they did not know that the truck had been stolen.

A witness told authorities several people attempted to rob the ATM just before 5 a.m. Waco PD says the suspects fled the scene in a white SUV.

Although the machine was significantly damaged, the suspects were unsuccessful in getting anything out of it.

Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities.
