Man Arrested After Alleged ATM Theft

Casper Police have arrested at least one of the three people that they say tried to steal an ATM from the Sunrise Shopping Center.
JJ Martinez is also a suspect in an ATM burglary at Casper's Eastridge Mall, as well as one in Campbell County.
Authorities believe Martinez, along with Mark Stark and another man identified in court documents as "Shaggy," entered the Sunrise Shopping Center on the night of November fourth by shattering a glass door. Court documents state they allegedly then stole a dolly located in front of harbor freight tools, by cutting the cable securing it to a display.
The three then allegedly tried to use the dolly to wheel the ATM out of the shopping center. However, the process took so long they feared police might show up, so they left both the ATM and the dolly.
Documents also say the motive for the attempted theft may have been to fund drug dealing activities.
