Man wanted for ATM burglaries sought by police

Posted by Charles Gazaway - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The pictures in this story leaves no doubt in the minds of Louisville Metro Police detectives that someone reading this knows the suspect. That means detectives can solve this case with just one tip from you.

Our suspect looks like a casual customer when the bank surveillance camera captures his snapshot. However, he is far from it and police need to know who he is.

The bank ATM our suspect visited on October 17 was in northeastern Jefferson County. He was not waiting to use his debit card; he was trying to break into the bank ATM.

"The suspect is caught on video in his car driving up to the ATM and the drive-thru window," said Det. Bill Shingleton of Louisville Metro Police. "The suspect uses a tool to try to pry the ATM open and get the money."

Because the man has tried similar crimes at other banks, Metro Police believe they can solve some cases if they could learn his identity and ask him some questions.

"The crimes are similar in nature where the suspects try to get money out of ATMs by using tools," Det. Shingleton said.

As you can see in the photos, the suspect is a white male with short blonde hair. From the bank surveillance photos, detectives can see the dark colored car he was driving has fog lights and a temporary license tag in the rear window.

Det. Shingleton said having the surveillance video is instrumental in solving the cases. Without the video, Shingleton said police would have no witnesses.

If you have any details on this case, call the LMPD anonymous crime tip line at 574-LMPD or 574-5673.
