Black Cadillac Hates ATM Machines, Smashes Into Them; Drivers Steal the Loot
Someone's driving around lower Manhattan in a big old Cadillac and smashing into ATMs, cracking them open and stealing whatever cash is inside, law enforcement sources say.
Talk about a novel crime idea. That's what happens, I guess, when you start plopping electronic boxes full of cash on sidewalks. Why didn't anyone think of it sooner?
The last incident was on March 31, at about 1:50 a.m., and the take was $13,200. Sources say there are two heavyset men involved. They drive a 18-year-old Cadillac Brougham with fancy hubcaps.
It's unclear how many of these thefts have happened, but the NYPD has identified it as a pattern in both the 7th Precinct and the 1st Precinct. Detetectives have asked for a block-by-block search for the car.
The car could not be reached for comment.
