SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Police Department and Crime Stoppers are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest in a string of ATM burglary attempts at various Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union (RBFCU) branches.
RBFCU is offering an additional reward of $10,000.
According to police, the suspects have tried to break into ATMs at three RBFCU locations at least five times from Sept. 23 to Nov. 27.
The attempts occurred at 6475 Baywater Dr., 10567 Culebra Rd., and 5611 UTSA Blvd. On Nov. 26, two suspected thieves disabled a surveillance camera and used a blow torch to try to break into an ATM at the Baywater branch.
