Stolen excavator used in ATM bank robbery early Sunday morning in St. John's
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — Thieves used a stolen excavator to rob a bank’s automated teller machine in a brazen overnight incident in St. John’s Sunday.
The incident was discovered when St. John’s Regional Fire Department firefighters responded to an alarm call at the Scotiabank branch on Danny Drive in Galway at about 2:30 a.m. They then notified the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary when they arrived on scene and found a gaping hole in the side of the building where the drive-through ATM machine had been.
