There's an art to stealing an ATM, and whoever made off with one of the cash machines outside an eastern Kansas bank apparently was no artist.
The Ottawa Herald reports that Franklin County sheriff's officers responded early Sunday to an alarm at Patriots Bank in the small town of Princeton.
Deputies arrived to see an ATM missing from its place outside the bank and being pushed slowly along a street by a pickup truck. The driver abandoned the cash machine and sped off, then crashed the truck and ran away.
Officers recovered the ATM and the cash. The sheriff's department has identified a person of interest and continues to investigate.
