Tracking Device Finds Stolen ATM
Placer County sheriff's detectives arrested four men and recovered a 3,000-pound Golden One CU ATM that had been stolen from Cal Expo hours before.
A Global Positioning System device in the ATM allowed officials to track the machine to the suspects' home, police said. The thieves took the machine to their Loomis home and used a sledgehammer, a pry bar and an acetylene torch to get the machine open-but couldn't get inside. The suspects apparently hot-wired a forklift to separate the ATM from a concrete mooring at the Cal Expo and then lift it onto the truck. Police also found two stolen Wave Runners and a stolen diesel generator at the property.
