BUCHANAN COUNTY, Va. – Police are looking for community help in identifying those responsible for two Southwest Virginia ATM incidents.

On Tuesday, the Virginia State Police said that their Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Wytheville Field Office is searching for the people that destroyed bank ATMs in Dickenson and Buchanan counties.

On July 30 around 1 a.m., the drive-thru lane ATM of the Town of Haysi New Peoples Bank located in the 100 block of Main Street was destroyed, police said, but the people didn’t take any cash.

Virginia State Police said that the second incident happened on Monday around 2 a.m. and that the people destroyed and robbed the ATM at the Town of Grundy New Peoples Bank on Route 460 on the 22,400 block of Anchorage Street.

Authorities said that a dark-colored 2018-2022 Toyota Camry with Florida plates was seen at the Haysi ATM incident and that there is evidence that an F-250 truck was involved in both of the incidents.

It appears both thefts were done by the same three people, according to police.

VSP said that anyone with information about either incident is encouraged to call them at 276-228-3131 or by email at questions@vsp.virginia.gov.
