Police Blotter

ATM theft attempted, one suspect caught
According to the police report, on Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 2:30 a.m., a theft occurred at the Northumberland National Bank at 87 Lori Lane in the Monroe Township. Troopers were dispatched to an alarm at the Northumberland Bank at approximately 2:45 a.m.
Jorge Hernandez Vasquez, 26, was observed at the ATM outside of the bank and a second suspect was observed in a car at the drive-in ATM. The police report said the troopers also observed that an ATM had been torn from the bank wall.
The police officers were able to apprehend Vasquez, who initially resisted arrest and was electronically immobilized four times according to the police report. The suspects allegedly used a 2000 Ford F-150 to pull the ATM from the building wall using chains and hooks.
It was later determined that the vehicle the suspects were using was stolen from Michael L Deivert, 39. Deivert lives at 857 North Seventh St. in Sunbury. According to the police report, Deivert did not know that his car was stolen until he was contacted by police.
Damage to the ATM is estimated at $30,000, although no money was actually taken, the report said. Vasquez was charged with theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and resisting arrest.
Vasquez was arraigned by District Justice Willis Savidge and placed into Snyder County Prison on $150,000 bail.
