Thief Makes ATM Withdrawal From Back of Machine

Crime happened on October 17




    Police say someone pulled cash out of a Fairfax Station ATM from the wrong side of the machine.

    Fairfax County law enforcement said a thief cut a hole through the drywall behind the room where an ATM was housed on the 5600 block of Ox Road.  The crime was detected on October 17, when a customer tried to use the machine, and noticed a strong burning odor in the air.

    Behind the machine, the ATM's wires were sliced through and a hole gaped in the wall.
