Police are searching for three men they believe may be involved in an attempt to steal an ATM machine from a southwest Miami-Dade bank early Friday morning.
The incident took place just before 5:30 a.m. at a Bank of America drive-thru location near the intersection of Southwest 95th Court and 54th Street in Kendall, where officers arrived to find the machine damaged in the middle of a parking lot.
Two men reportedly were seen trying to take the machine in a dark colored truck before fleeing. Police found the abandoned truck two blocks away and towed it away for investigation.
A third man allegedly arrived in a black van wearing dark colored clothing before leaving as well.
A woman who lives near the bank said she heard what sounded like a crash.
”It was really loud, it was super super loud, it was like an explosion or something," Melisa Hernandez said.
Miami-Dade Police have not released any additional details on who they are looking for or if any money was taken from the machine. The FBI is assisting with the investigation.
Anyone with any information is asked to call police or Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers.
