Thieves Steal Third ATM in Province

In the early morning hours of January 4, 2024, Turtleford RCMP responded to a break and enter at a business in Paradise Hill, Saskatchewan.

At around 6:40 a.m., four suspects, utilizing two vehicles, broke into a business and stole an ATM. The suspects used one vehicle to reverse into the building. The stolen ATM was later found empty near Kitscoty, Alberta.

The suspects, armed and dangerous, fled the scene in a white 4-door one-ton truck with a flat deck, one of the vehicles still at large. The other vehicle, previously reported stolen from Alberta, was recovered in Saskatchewan.

Investigations are underway, with law enforcement collaborating across provinces. This incident marks the third of its kind in the province in less than 2 weeks.

All three thefts, occurring at credit unions and a convenience store, shared a common method. Stolen vehicles or equipment were employed to break into the buildings, allowing the thieves to pull out the cash machines by either lifting or dragging them through the front doors.

Police have not said if the three thefts are connected.

The Suspects in this latest ATM theft are being described as follows:

  • Suspect 1 is described as approximately 6’0” with a medium build, wearing a royal blue jacket with high visibility stripes, a gray toque, dark colored pants with white stripes down the side, yellow gloves, and has a walking cast/boot on their left foot.
  • Suspect 2 is described as approximately 6’0” with a medium build, wearing a black jacket with a hood, a gray baseball hat with a sticker on the inside top brim, dark pants, gray running shoes with white soles.

  • Suspect 4 remained in the truck and no current descriptors are available.
