Suspect Bails After ATM Smash-And-Grab Goes Awry

July 31, 2018 - 6:39 am

DETROIT (WWJ) - An early morning smash-and-grab on Detroit's west side didn't get very far.

It happened Tuesday at the Comerica Bank on Grand River just west of Outer Drive.

The suspect used a white pickup truck to reverse into an exterior ATM, but the frame of the machine got stuck on the bed of the truck. 

The ATM was damaged but not enough to get any money.

The suspect left the truck at the scene, with the engine still running. 

An investigation continues.
