FINKSBURG, Md. — Maryland State Police are looking for whoever tried stealing a bank ATM in Carroll County.

It happened overnight Sunday at the Truist Bank, in the Finksburg Plaza Shopping Center on Gamber Road.

Police were alerted by the bank's alarm that went off around 3:56am.

When troopers arrived they found an abandoned truck, trailer, and skid loader, all of which turned out to be stolen.

The thief had already gotten away, but without the ATM.

“Luckily, we had a trooper who was actually on his way home from work who swung by and maybe scared the suspects who were attempting to steal this ATM,” said Elena Russo of the Maryland State Police, “Because once our troopers were able to get on the scene, they located the heavy machinery that’s all suspected of being stolen in an attempt to dismantle this ATM.”

Police provided these pictures of the stolen property left behind at the scene.
