Authorities in Newark are trying to determine if one of three ATMs found dumped in Newark's North Ward is that of a stolen machine from a Kearny gas station burglary Sunday.
Police responded to reports of an abandoned ATM in the 30's block of Passaic Street.
Upon arrival, police found a machine that appeared to have been dumped on the street before 4 p.m.
Additional units requested to respond to McCarter Highway after another machine was reportedly recovered on the roadway.
Over the weekend, RLS Media observed Newark Police at the end of Passaic Street, just yards from the NJ-21 entrance, investigating a damaged ATM lying in a grassy area.
Hudson County officials said they are looking into a series of burglaries where suspects using crowbars and burglary tools have broken into businesses and stolen cash and ATMs since the weekend.
The investigation into who dumped the ATMs is active and ongoing.
