    I’m against stealing and I hope they catch the guy, but portable ATMs seem to me that the bank is taking a huge risk. It’s like having a teller full of cash out on the street just hoping nothing bad happens. Seems kinda stupid to me.

      Those machines are privately owned. People invest in them to get a cut of the ridiculously high transaction fees for the privilege of convenience. They are sold and leased by the thousands.

    So did he rob a bank or a nail salon? Who owns the money in a portable ATM?

    Any photo of the suspect? Where’s he from? Local guy?

      Where is he from? Local guy? I about laughed out loud when I saw this. Umm if they knew both of those, most likely he would be in custody.
