January 03, 2011

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Stephens City, Va., man is accused of stealing an ATM from a Bunker Hill, W.Va., business and prying it open to get the cash, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Jamie Alexander Fisher, of 731 Plymouth St., No. 32, was arraigned Monday on felony counts of breaking and entering, and grand larceny by Magistrate Jim Humphrey, according to court records.

The automated teller machine, taken Nov. 10 from Red & Betty’s at 10457 Winchester Ave., was found lying on its side near water along a dirt road off McCubbins Hollow Road near the intersection with Brannon’s Ford Road in the Glengary area, according to a complaint by West Virginia State Police Trooper J.B. Flanigan.

The ATM had “extensive” pry marks and physical damage, and footprints on the exterior where the trooper said it had been kicked, according to court records.

A receipt printed from the ATM after it was plugged in at the Martinsburg detachment listed Red & Betty’s and the business’ address, according to Flanigan’s complaint.

Police were told the machine was valued at about $2,400 and contained about $1,260, according to court records.
