Report: Thieves pose as workers, steal entire ATM in Pa.

SWATARA TOWNSHIP, Pa. --

Businesses in Dauphin County that have portable ATMs are being warned about a recent theft that was pulled off with one phone call.

Swatara Township police say someone called the Spring Creek Rehabilitation and Health Center Monday night and asked if maintenance personnel had picked up the ATM.

"This phone call created the false impression that someone was supposed to pick up the ATM machine," a police news release stated.

Minutes later, three men entered the lobby, put the machine on a dolly, loaded it into a dark-colored minivan and drove off.

The Swatara Township Police are currently attempting to identify the three individuals who removed the ATM from the Spring Creek Center. They are described as follows:

1. Black male, dark complexion, 5 feet 9 to 5 feet 10, wearing a red Philadelphia Phillies hat

2. Black or Hispanic male, light complexion, 6 feet to 6 feet 2, wearing a New York Yankees hat

3. (At this time, there is no description available for the 3rd male)

Anyone with information relative to the theft from the Spring Creek Center is urged to call the Swatara Township Police at 717-564-2550.
