According to sources familiar with the investigation, police departments in multiple cities, including Newark, Robbinsville, Woodbridge, Springfield, Millburn, Randolph and Pequannock have received complaints from officials at the Santander Bank reporting thefts from the ATM.

There have been several people detained in connection to this incident but officials have not announced an orchestrated plot to defraud the banks or a mechanical error at this time.
FBI officials have not yet confirmed any information regarding the incident.
