FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Fairfax County detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying two suspects they believe have been involved in several attempted ATM thefts this year.
According to police, on Saturday, Oct. 1 two men driving a white Ford truck went to the NextMark Credit Union at 6506 Loisdale Road in Springfield between 4 a.m. and 4:10 a.m. After they arrived at the credit union, the men placed a tow strap around the ATM and attempted to steal the machine.

Fairfax Police say this is just the most recent incident involving ATM thefts and burglary attempts in the county and surrounding areas.
