A Christmas misadventure led Seattle police to a stolen forklift that was left running.
Seattle police responded to a cry for help early Christmas morning. It came from an ATM.
The cash machine had been knocked over in a parking lot near Aurora Avenue North and North 125th Street, according to police. This triggered an alarm around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
Officers found no suspects at the scene. But they did find a large forklift, its engine still running, that they believe was hot-wired and stolen.
“It is not believed that any cash was taken, although the property damage is significant,” Detective Mark Jamieson wrote in a news release.
