Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Tyler Police tell KETK they believe they have a found the vehicle in connection with two ATM burglaries earlier this month.
Authorities found an abandoned maroon van with a missing hubcap on at the Hudson Apartments on Shiloh road today in Tyler.
The call originally came in as a suspicious vehicle call, but later found the van to be stolen and abandoned.
Tyler Police have towed the van to the station for furhter investigation.
Earlier this month, a man was caught on surveillance video trying to pull an ATM from the wall of a CVS Pharmacy at 2:30 a.m. December 18, 2013 in the 4900 block of South Broadway Avenue.
The pharmacy's doors had been forced open by the mini-van backing up to the front doors. The would-be burglar got out of the van, forced open the doors, and attempted to take the ATM.
After several failed attempts to remove the machine, the man drove away.
Police believe this vehicle was used in another attempted ATM theft that same morning at Texas Bank and Trust in the 2300 block of West Grande Boulevard.
That burglary was also unsuccessful.
Tyler Police are still investigating these incidents. Anyone with any information is asked to call Tyler Police.
