KJAS in Jasper, TX, has shared that for the second time in a week, the ATM at Sabine State Bank in Burkeville was the site of an attempted burglary.
Newton County Sheriff Robert Burby says his deputies responded to the bank on Highway 63 shortly after 5:00 a.m. Sunday, May 2, 2021, following a report of an alarm at the ATM.
Burby said when deputies arrived they found the ATM doors were standing open.
Deputies found an abandoned 2006 Ford pickup truck, still running, on the side of Highway 63 that was listed as stolen out of Houston.
The ATM was still out of order and contained no cash following the damage it sustained during the attempted burglary on the morning of Monday, April 26th. In that case one man was taken into custody and another man is still at-large after stealing a pickup truck from an area residence.
Sheriff Burby says there have been no arrests in the case that occurred yesterday.
