Truck yanks ATM then hits TriMet bus, police say
Police are on the hunt for multiple suspects after an automated teller marchine was ripped out of a local convenience store.
Portland Police East Precinct officers responded to a Plaid Pantry, 5146 S.E. Holgate Boulevard, around 4:18 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 10.
Police say three men tied the ATM to a chain attached to a pick-up truck and successfully pulled the ATM free. They later removed cash from it. But in their haste, they crashed into a nearby TriMet bus.
No one onboard the bus was injured in the crash. Police found the pick-up abandoned near Southeast Cora Street and 42nd Avenue.
"One suspect has been described as a white man, 6-feet-tall with a medium to heavy build and the second has been described as a man, 6-feet-tall with a thin build," according to KOIN 6 News, a media partner of the Portland Tribune. "There is no description for the third suspect."
Police ask nearby residents and businesses to check their security cameras for relevant footage.
