NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Police recovered an ATM stolen from a Region's Bank on Nolensville Road, just south of Interstate 440 early Wednesday morning.
Authorities said someone pulled up to the ATM to take out money and found ripped wires where the ATM was supposed to be located.
Police said thieves ripped out the ATM early Wednesday but did not get very far.
The thieves ditched the ATM and the chains they used to steal it.
Police said they found three other cars in the area but are not exactly sure how all the vehicles are related.
“Right now the vehicles are not reported stolen, we are looking into that further. It's going to take more investigation on all parts to figure out how those vehicles are related, who they are related to and if they're related to this incident,” said Metro police Sgt. Joe Towers.
A surveillance camera at the bank was tilted up. Police said it is possible the thieves did that to avoid being caught on camera.
“We'll be looking at some information here at the scene, some forensic evidence that needs to be looked at, and the video tape from the bank,” Sgt. Towers said.
Detectives were canvassing the area Wednesday morning, interviewing potential witnesses and neighboring businesses.
Police said the thieves were not able to steal any money from the ATM.
