Thieves steal ATM

Nanaimo Mounties are on the lookout for thieves who made off with an automated teller machine from the A&W restaurant on Bowen Road.

Police responded to 1825 Bowen Rd. at 6:18 a.m. Thursday to a glass-break alarm and found a steel door to the restaurant smashed open and the ATM removed.

There were no witnesses and investigators are reviewing surveillance video, but Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said there is little to go on.

“This was a brazen act which would have created considerable noise,” he said. “At that time of day Bowen Road has lots of vehicle traffic with many people heading to work. We are hoping  someone may have seen or heard something and will call us.”

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to please call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-22-8477 or go online to www.nanaimocrimstoppers.com.
