Evidence Left at Scene of Attempted ATM Robbery


Firefighters respond to a call of a structure fire and find evidence of attempted ATM robbery.

Los Angeles: At 3:42 a.m. April 1, 2020, LAFD responded to a call of a structure fire on the 19000 block of W Parthenia Street. When firefighters arrived, they discovered a truck parked outside directly in front of the shattered front door to a business, and smoke presenting from both sides of the ATM machine located inside. The truck also had a chain attached to the axle that snaked along the ground to the ATM machine.


The smoke from the ATM machine prompted the call to the fire department, but by the time they arrived on the scene, the suspect(s) had already fled.

It has not been determined, at this point, if any money was stolen from the machine. LAPD was called to investigate.
