Police say stolen tractor used in attempt to steal ATM at Brentwood Bank of America

BRENTWOOD, California (KGO) – Police are investigating an unusual bank robbery in Brentwood Sunday, where they say a suspect used a tractor to break into an ATM.

An officer on patrol discovered the front loader abandoned near a Bank of America branch on Sunday morning, with the ATM machine smashed to pieces.

Police believe the tractor was stolen from a nearby construction site.

“We can’t even live safely in this community. People work so hard. They just need to work. Why are they stealing things?” Soma Azizi, a resident of Brentwood, said.

Despite the damage, no cash was taken.

A similar break-in, also in Brentwood, happened about a month ago.

In that case, witnesses reported seeing a tractor tear through the ATM from the front of a Wells Fargo branch.

The machine was found about 100 yards from the bank.
