BSO arrests two Deerfield youths for series of ATM robberies

Posted on 28 January 2016 by LeslieM

A third person is being sought

On Monday Jan. 25, a Broward Sheriff’s Office surveillance operation paid off when three men were spotted loitering near a Pompano Beach bank. Between mid-December and mid-January at least five robberies at walk-up and drive-through ATMs were reported in Deerfield Beach and Pompano Beach, prompting the BSO’s VIPER response team to set up the surveillance post.

The robbers’ method was for two of the men to startle victims and hold them at gunpoint while demanding cash from the ATM; they would then flee with the loot.

As the VIPER team approached the three loiterers on Monday, they fled on foot. Two 17-year-old male residents of Deerfield Beach were apprehended, while a third escaped and is being sought. The two in custody have admitted committing at least five robberies, and were planning another one when interrupted by the BSO.

Anyone believing they have been victimized by these robbers, or with information leading to the third robber, should contact the BSO robbery detectives at 954-321-4270.
