Surveillance video shows masked suspects burning ATMs

Surveillance video shows masked suspects burning ATMs

Channel 2 Action News has learned criminals have developed a new way to target ATMs around metro Atlanta. We obtained surveillance video showing how masked suspects are lighting fires and burning the ATMs. This latest fire happened early Monday morning in Fayetteville. Police say this is the latest of five cases reported in metro Atlanta since March. 'It's something that someone may have been (seen while) driving by. A large trail of gasoline running across a parking lot, it's something that stands out,' said Capt. Chad Myers with the Fayetteville Police Department. TRENDING STORIES: 'Armed and dangerous' man terrorizing 4 metro counties, police say WARNING: After close call, mom wants to alert others of 'dry drowning' Official reprimanded for 'racist pig' comments wants to take case to high court 'Their intent is trying to get into the ATM machines, or else what other purpose would they be doing that for?' Myers said. Fayetteville police say arsonists left two money machines mangled and took off in a dark colored sedan. The masked men hit a PNC Bank early Saturday, then a Wells Fargo. But police say the suspects left without money. 'Fortunately, they just haven't been doing it that successfully here,' Myers said. Frustrated customers were forced to find other places to get money while crews removed one of the damaged ATMs. 'It's incredible that these guys pull capers like this and inconvenience us,' said customer Chad Mack. The two suspects are wanted in Henry, Rockdale, Cobb and now Fayette counties. The concern is that playing with fire could get someone killed. 'You could have blown the whole building up. Luckily, it was just the ATM,' said Myers. So far, police say no one has been hurt in any of these incidents. Police hope someone driving by one of these fires saw something and can come forward to help lead to an arrest. Anyone with information about the crime is urged to call Crimestoppers, 404-577-TIPS.

Man in custody after 2 Dallas officers, store employee shot

Man in custody after 2 Dallas officers, store employee shot

Two Dallas police officers were critically wounded in a shooting that also injured a home improvement store employee Tuesday, authorities said. The shooting occurred about 4:15 p.m. as officers were escorting a man from the Home Depot in northern Dallas. The two officers and the store loss-prevention officer underwent surgery for their injuries, Police Chief U. Renee Hall said late Tuesday night. She did not provide details of their conditions but asked for continued prayers for their recovery. Police arrested Armando Luis Juarez, 29, on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer and felony theft. He was taken into custody shortly before 10 p.m. after a lengthy car chase involving officers of various law enforcement agencies. 'We got our man,' Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said at the late-night news conference. The two police officers were called to the store to help an off-duty officer with removing the man from the store. In a tweet about the shooting Tuesday evening, the Dallas Police Department said the officers were critically wounded, but Hall declined to go into detail about their conditions during two news conferences at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. She said surgery was completed on the police officers and store employee late Tuesday at the hospital. Rawlings said he continues 'to be upset at the lack of respect for our police in this city and in our country.' In 2016, four Dallas police officers and a transit officer were shot dead by a sniper in an ambush that came toward the end of a peaceful protest over the police killings of black men that had occurred in other cities. ___ This story has been corrected to show that the fatal shooting of five officers in Dallas was during a protest in 2016, not 2006.

Trump pick to head VA in trouble as Senators postpone hearing

President Donald Trump’s decision to elevate the White House physician to lead the Veterans Administration was in peril on Tuesday, as top Senators in both parties announced that a confirmation hearing set this week for Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson would be ‘postponed until further notice,’ as Mr. Trump said it’s up to Jackson on whether he wants to pursue the post.

“I said to Dr. Jackson, what do you need it for?” the President told reporters at the White House. “So, we’ll see what happens.”

Mr. Trump said he had not seen details of questions raised about Jackson’s time as the [More]
