HCSO Deputies Arrest Three in Thwarted ATM Heist.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office District 2 patrol deputies quick actions are credited in the arrest and charging of three men who were in the process of stealing an ATM from a local bank in north Harris County.

Deputies received an in progress call from the First Convenience Bank located in the 5200 block of Aldine Mail Route around 1:45 a.m.

When deputies arrived they observed seven male subjects who were trying to load an ATM machine into an early model Ford Econoline van.

The van was reported stolen earlier that evening.

Then men fled when deputies arrived on scene as the still photo show.

The three men captured are charged with engaging in organized crime, felony theft and evading detention.

The mug shots are in order of listing.
