1 arrested, 2 sought in attempted ATM heist


BESSEMER, Ala. (WIAT) — Investigators say a man arrested Monday is one of three suspects who masterminded a plan to rip an ATM out of a Family Dollar in Bessemer.

Eddie Medley is in jail facing burglary, theft and criminal mischief charges.

The crime happened early Monday morning at the Family Dollar off 9th Avenue North.

Police say the men tried ripping the ATM out of the storefront using a stolen pickup truck.

When they were spotted, they hopped inside the truck and tried to take off. However, their truck spun out and hit two poles.

Medley was tossed from the truck’s bed. The other two suspects took off on foot, but Medley was apprehended by police.

Anyone with information about the other suspects involved is asked to call Bessemer Police at (205) 425-2411.
