May 05, 2013 15:45This morning, Sunday May 5, 2013, at 6:18 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the report of a truck ramming at ATM in front of the Selco Community Credit Union, located at 2465 Northwest Thurman Street.
Officers arrived in the area and found the suspect vehicle abandoned a few blocks away. Significant damage was done to the front of the credit union as well as the ATM.
Officers spoke to a person near where the truck was abandoned who told police that a person tried to get into their truck but ran away when confronted.
Officers searched the neighborhood but did not locate anyone matching the suspects description, which was a white or Hispanic male in all dark clothing.
It is not known at this point if this attempted ATM theft is connected to a similar incident last week on Southeast Belmont Street.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Portland Police at CrimeTips@PortlandOregon.gov
