ATM Machine Stolen out of Jersey City Checkers

The Jersey City Police are investigating a stolen ATM machine from a Checkers restaurant late Wednesday night. According to the reports released so far, the suspect(s) shattered the front door of a Checkers restaurant and stole the entire ATM machine, not just the cash inside of it. It wasn’t until the manager reported to work in the morning that the theft was discovered.

According to the owner, he believed there was $5,980 in cash inside the ATM. In addition, the ATM machine has been valued at $1,500. Therefore, if the suspects are ever caught, they will be charged with theft in the third degree based on the dollar amount being more than $500 but less than $75,000. In addition, they will also be charged with criminal mischief in the third degree as well as burglary in the third degree.
