Thieves seize $100,000 from worker restocking Bronx ATMs: police

Conniving crooks in the Bronx stole $100,000 from an ATM company, police say, and they didn’t even need a PIN.

The two thieves were following a courier who restocks Bronx ATMs, cops said.

They set their burglary in motion when the courier parked his vehicle outside the White Plains furniture store on White Plains Road near Boston Road in Allerton around 2:15 p.m. on May 30, police said.

The 31-year-old worker locked up his vehicle before repairing a nearby ATM.

But one of the thieves smashed a passenger-side rear window and then searched the vehicle, taking several business documents and cash used to fill the machines, cops said.

The crook fled in a black SUV driven by the accomplice.

Cops believe the two thieves had been following the courier for some time before deciding to pounce.

No injuries were reported.

Cops released surveillance footage of one of the robbers on Wednesday in hopes someone would recognize him.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the man is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
