PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - It appears investigators have the people responsible for stealing or trying to steal money from ATMs at multiple locations in Colorado.

On Wednesday, the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office announced four men were identified and arrested connected to the theft of an ATM from the Loaf ‘N Jug in Avondale back in September. In that crime, surveillance video shows a red Jeep enter the parking lot and slam into the front doors of the Loaf ‘N Jug in the 200 block of Highway 50 in Avondale just east of Pueblo. The Jeep was later found abandoned in Fremont County with part of the ATM. The other part of the ATM was found in Pueblo County.

The sheriff’s office didn’t clarify if these were the same suspects tied to a Loaf ‘N Jug that was targeted off Drennan Road and South Academy or a similar crime that happened off Drennan Road and Hancock Expressway. However, the sheriff’s office added these suspects were involved in similar crimes in El Paso, Fremont and Denver Counties.

- Roger Zaragoza
