PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Police in Massachusetts are investigating the theft of an ATM and a 400-pound safe from a veterans’ organization.
Manager Martha Read of Pittsfield’s American Legion Post 68 tells The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/2iPbyJk ) that both items were stolen late last month.
There was about $2,000 in the ATM and about $450 cash inside the 5-foot tall gun safe.
Read says someone cut the alarm and telephone wires at the back of the building at about 5 a.m. Aug. 20, then pried open the exterior door.
Video surveillance shows a man wearing gray pants, a blue hooded sweatshirt, gloves and a mask, in the building. The video has been shown to other staffers and members, but no one recognized the suspect.
Read says it’s sad that someone would steal from veterans.
