Sequoyah County ATM Thieves Strike Again

Posted: Updated:

For the second time in three weeks, Sequoyah County deputies are looking for two men who drove a truck through the front doors of a convenience store and stole an ATM.

Sequoyah Count Sheriff Ron Lockhart told KFSM, the CBS affiliate in Fort Smith, the alarm at  the Sparks store at the intersection of Highways 59 and 101 went off at 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Lockhart says deputies found the truck about a mile away. He says the truck had been stolen from a nearby home overnight.

Surveillance video from the store shows two men wearing white masks loading up the ATM and Lockhart says they match the descriptions of two men who stole an ATM from the Pier Seven convenience store south of Sallisaw in September.

“We also know these same suspects did the same type crime in Adair and Cherokee Counties in the last two months,” Sheriff Ron Lockhart said.

"Investigators did locate physical evidence left in the truck that we feel will lead us to the suspect or suspects."
