An investigation determined that multiple suspects had stolen a dump truck from a nearby business, as well as a pay loader from a construction site near the bank. Both vehicles were then driven to the bank, and the thieves used the pay loader to rip the ATM off the bank, police said.
The ATM was driven away in the dump truck, while the pay loader was left behind.
The next day, the ATM was recovered at the Hartford Landfill on Liebert Road. The ATM had been smashed, the cash was removed and the machine was partially buried at the landfill. Two of the excavators left at the landfill overnight were used to smash the ATM, police said.
The dump truck was recovered in a wooded area between the landfill and Riverside Park in Hartford.
The amount of cash stolen from the ATM is undetermined, police said.
Anyone with any information, or who may have observed any suspicious activity around the date and time of the theft, are asked to call Sgt. Michael Furlong of the Glastonbury Police Department at (860)633-8301
