HOUSTON – Houston police are working to learn who attempted to steal an ATM from a Wells Fargo Bank in north Houston.
Investigators said they were called around 3:30 a.m. to the 3600 block of Eastex Freeway for a report of a panic alarm. There, they found a large, green forklift used to attempt to steal the machine.
A box truck was also located nearby, police said. The vehicle has since been processed for evidence.
