1 min read

GRANBY — Police are investigating an early morning ATM break-in on Tuesday where suspects used a stolen dump truck to rip open the cash machine before fleeing with the contents.

The Granby Police Department responded to a call at 1:26 a.m. at the People’s Bank ATM located at 77 W State Street.

Witnesses reported a white Ford dump truck arriving at the scene, from which three individuals disembarked, opened the ATM, and attached chains to it.

After pulling the ATM open with the truck, the suspects collected the cash boxes and sped away.

Authorities later found the abandoned truck roughly a half-mile from the crime scene.

It had been reported stolen from South Hadley the night before.

Left at the site were the crowbars and chains used in the theft.

Earlier that night, at 11:04 p.m., the same vehicle was linked to an attempted break-in at a Berkshire Bank ATM on Shaker Road in East Longmeadow, though the suspects failed to access the cash and departed.

The truck was later spotted on Main Street in Indian Orchard.

Security footage revealed that a small, dark-colored SUV may have been following the truck during the incidents.

In a bid to track down the suspects, Granby police are requesting public assistance.

Anyone with information related to the crimes or the individuals involved is urged to call the Granby Police Department at 413-467-9222.
