Red Deer RCMP investigate attempted theft of ATM

Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for two men who tried unsuccessfully to steal an ATM from the East Hill Fas Gas early Monday morning.

The failed theft occurred at 2:45 am on July 18 when a white truck with a covered license plate pulled up to the front entrance of the Fas Gas on 30 Avenue and 22 Street with a tow strap attached to the rear of the vehicle.

The first suspect wore a black hoodie with “Ruthless” in white text on the front and “Crooks and Castles” in white text on the back. The second suspect wore a camouflage jacket with a hoodie and camouflage pants.
