Blue Earth Police are looking for a man who they say backed a stolen pickup up to the First Bank Blue Earth on Main Street at 4 am on Friday, hooked a logging chain to the ATM, and yanked the machine out of the building.
Investigators say the man first tried to pry the machine loose with a pry bar and a sledgehammer, but that wasn’t successful.
The ATM was loaded into a pickup, which police say had been stolen from Hawkins Chevrolet in Fairmont and was later found abandoned about six miles west of Frost.
They are looking for a man with an athletic build. The suspect was wearing a facemask during the theft.
