Calgary police are looking for a man they believe broke into a series of ATMs throughout Calgary and southern Alberta.
Officers say they received eight reports involving an “unknown man” captured on CCTV footage breaking into safes and ATMs at several banks, with seven other reports of the same thing happening in various southern Alberta communities.
Police say the suspect uses an e-scooter and enters by either smashing through glass with a hammer or using an Angle Grinder or cement saw to cut through doors and fences.
They describe the suspect as wearing a black hoodie with the hood pulled up, a black face covering, blue jeans, gloves, dark-coloured shoes, and wearing a black backpack.
Investigators ask people not to approach the suspect if they spot him and to contact police immediately.
Police ask anyone with information about this incident to call them at 403-266-1234 or leave a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
