PLATTSMOUTH – The Plattsmouth Police Department on Monday was still looking for four suspects who used a small explosive device in trying to gain access to an ATM machine early in the morning of Jan. 12, the department said.
According to Capt. Ryan Crick, department officers around 8 a.m. that day responded to the Citizens State Bank branch at 2020 W. Eighth Ave. on a report of the ATM at that location having a significant amount of damage possibly caused during the previous evening/overnight hours.
From a surveillance camera, officers discovered four suspects attempted to gain access to the money in the machine at approximately 4:30 a.m. by placing a small explosive device near the ATM’s access door, Crick said.
The explosion caused an extensive amount of damage to the machine, but no money was stolen, Crick said.
With help from an Omaha Police Department explosives expert, officers processed the scene and were following up on any leads in an attempt to identify those suspects, he said.
