Hunt Suspect In Failed ATM Rob

By Liz Goff

Police are searching for a man who used a crowbar in the failed robbery of ATM machines at a Jackson Heights bank.

Cops said the suspect used the crowbar to gain entrance to an ATM center at a Chase Bank branch at 37-15 82nd Street in Jackson Heights on December 5th. The man entered the ATM center at about 12:45 a.m. on December 5th and tried unsuccessfully to enter a room behind the ATM machines, police said.

The man fled empty-handed on foot, when he realized he could not gain entrance to the rear room, police said. Surveillance footage shows the man running from the bank and heading north on 82nd Street. The ATM machines were not damaged in the attempted robbery.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male in his 50s, 5-feet, 8-inches to 5-feet, 10-inches tall. He was wearing a black jacket, black baseball cap, dark pants and sneakers at the time of the foiled robbery.
