HCSO Investigators are releasing photos and video of two men attempting to break in to an ATM using an improvised explosive device (I.E.D.).
On Tuesday, October 29, around 3:30 a.m., HCSO deputies responded to a Wells Fargo Bank located at 8808 Spring Cypress Drive.
Deputies arrived before the suspects detonated the device. The device would later be determined to be an I.E.D. Deputies quickly set up a perimeter around the scene. Members of the HCSO Bomb Squad deactivated the device and rendered it safe around 6:15 a.m. Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office, Klein Fire Department, Cypress Creek EMS and Harris County Precinct 4 Constables were also on scene.
Surveillance video shows two light-skinned men with their faces partially covered, approach the ATM and remove its cover. They are then seen attaching the explosive device, and then driving away in a newer model BMW.
Anyone with information is urged to call the HCSO Violent Crime unit at 713-274-9100 or Crime stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers may pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and/or arrest of the suspect in this case.
