STCU is seeking the public’s help identifying a would-be thief who attempted to steal an ATM at one of their north Spokane branches Friday morning.

The credit union shared on social media a surveillance photo of the person who tried to steal the cash machine at 207 E. Hastings Road just before 3:40 a.m. They are wearing a mask and driving a red stolen 2015 Nissan Pathfinder, according to STCU.

The credit union said the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office believes the person attempted the same crime at another local financial institution about two hours later.

“While ATMs are designed to be nearly indestructible, the damage inconveniences members and causes unnecessary expenses,” STCU said on social media.

Anyone with information about the attempted theft is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
