It was found that over $12,000 was missing from the ATM machine. Police were able to obtain photos of the suspect, as well as a photo of the vehicle used in the crime.

Later that same day at around 9:49 a.m., Gloversville Police were dispatched to 106 E. Fulton Street at the Laundromat, for a subject who broke into the laundromat the night before and stole more than $1,500 from a vending machine. After police looked at the video it was found that it was the same suspect who committed the crime at the ATM machine earlier in the morning.
