SYRACUSE — Multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating the early morning theft of an ATM from the Syracuse Branch of Home National Bank.
At 4:57 a.m. on Wednesday, the sheriff’s office responded to an alarm at the bank. Sgt. Mohler responded to the bank, coming from a location in Minersville, just minutes away. Upon arrival, officers discovered the ATM to have been taken from the bank.
At the Syracuse branch, the ATM is located in a small lobby area with 24/7 access, in an area which leads into the bank.
Sheriff Keith Wood stated that entry was not made into the bank itself, only the lobby/ATM area.
The Meigs County Prosecutor’s Office Investigator, along with the Gallia-Meigs Task Force are assisting in the investigation.
