Commercial Burglary, ATM Theft
11400 blk Canyon Rd E, Summit

A deputy was dispatched to a burglary that had occurred overnight at a nail salon. When he arrived, the owner told him that she arrived at work and saw that one of the front windows was broken. She went inside and discovered that the ATM had been stolen and the rear door had been pried open. According to surveillance video, the suspect shattered the window at 1:10 a.m. and entered the business for a short time before leaving. He came back at 7:00 a.m. and dragged the ATM out the back door. Due to video quality issues, deputies are not able to identify the suspect based on the video.

Commercial Burglary
17500 blk Meridian E, South Hill

Deputies were dispatched to a commercial burglary in progress at a bank. A security monitoring company had called 911 to report that subjects were breaking into an ATM in the bank’s vestibule. When deputies arrived, they saw a blue tarp hanging over the bank’s front doors. Inside the vestibule, they saw a damaged ATM and a large pry bar. They also found a circular saw and small baggies containing suspected drugs. Deputies conducted an area check but did not find any suspects. It appears that the suspects hung up the blue tarp to prevent passersby from witnessing the burglary. Deputies collected the items the suspects left behind (evidence) and canvassed the shopping complex for surveillance video.

Deputies were dispatched to a possible armed robbery at a credit union. When they arrived, they saw that the front window was shattered. The credit union was closed due to the holiday. Deputies searched the building for suspects but didn’t locate anyone. Multiple safes had been forced open and rolls of coins were scattered on the ground. The suspects also stole a money counter, valued at $2,000. Deputies reviewed surveillance video, which showed two suspects arriving and leaving in a red Ford Fiesta. We are still working to determine if the burglary triggered any alarms.
