Police are looking to identify the person responsible for attacking a cash machine in early December.

The incident occurred at about 3:30 a.m. December 7 at the automated teller machine at a bank in the 3100 block of Massey Drive.

Officers attended and located a severely damaged drive-thru bank machine.  No money was taken.  Surveillance images were obtained and show a suspect with a hammer attempting to gain access to the machine.  Investigators have not been able to identify the suspect and are now asking the public for help.

The suspect is described as:

  • Male
  • Approximately 45 to 55 years old
  • Heavier set
  • Mustache and goatee
  • Likely right handed

At the time of the offence, the suspect was wearing a black button shirt, jean jacket and faded red baseball cap.

The suspect appears to have been driving a small, white, two door car similar to an old Chevrolet Sprint, Pontiac Firefly or Geo Metro.  The driver’s side rear window appears to be fastened to the vehicle with duct tape.
