Father, son arrested in ATM theft from Bingo Casino

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Police have arrested a father and son who allegedly plowed a pickup truck into a south Wichita bingo hall and stole an ATM.

Officer Charley Davidson said two of the three suspects were arrested Wednesday. Jail records identified them as 53-year-old Alan Haag and 25-year-old Kasey Haag.

Surveillance video shows the crime happened at 4:23 a.m. Monday at the Bingo Casino at 2431 East Mount Vernon. The video shows a white truck with black zebra stripes backing through the front door. One of the suspects placed a tow rope around the ATM before it was driven out of the building.

Alan Haag was booked for several counts that include burglary, theft, possession of stolen property. Kansas Department of Corrections records show he has prior convictions of identity theft or fraud, forgery, burglary and theft.

Kasey Haag was booked for possession of marijuana, burglary, theft, failure to comply and a parole violation. He's on parole for aggravated robbery and also has prior convictions of burglary and theft.

 A booking report lists multiple case numbers for each suspect. Davidson confirmed they are father and son.


Previous story:

A group of thieves take the entire ATM from the Bingo Casino at Mount Vernon and Grove this morning.

Surveillance video shows the crime happened at 4:23 a.m.

"The video is just devastating because they just plowed into the door with the white zebra truck," said May Oglesbee, manager.

Two thieves that are hiding their faces can be seen breaking into the front door. One of the suspects placed a tow rope around the ATM before it was driven out of the building.

The video shows a white truck with black lower trip and black striping. 

"A very unique type truck," said Officer Charley Davidson, Wichita Police Dept. He added that the truck is a 1990s model GMC or Chevy 2500 extended cab long bed pickup. 

Oglesbee is upset that the thieves not only took the ATM, but caused several thousand dollars worth of damage. 

The damage also included to the table that carries special meaning to the business.

"Oprah Winfrey played bingo here one night when she was coming through Kansas. The table that she sat in is gone. I don't know. I'm just sad," said Oglesbee.

The Bingo Casino had their previous ATM taken back in 2016, but managers said this time, these thieves were more brazen in how they got the machine out of the building.

"I hope that justice is done for the people that did this," said Oglesbee.

If you have any information about the crime, call police or Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111.
