Chicago police on Wednesday released surveillance photos of a man who stole an ATM on the city's far south side last month.

The heist happened at about 2:45 a.m. on Dec. 14 at the Chicago Postal Employee Credit Union, at 10025 S. Western Ave., police said.

Surveillance cameras recorded a man entering the credit union and taking the ATM from its spot, and a second man assisting him in taking the machine away from the building into a car, then driving away.

The man who initially took the ATM is described as a black man with a thick build, wearing a black knit hat, black jacket and black gloves.

Police urge business owners who have ATMs to make sure the machine is securely fastened and in a well-lit area. Police also ask area residents to report any suspicious people, vehicles or activity.

Anyone with information should call Calumet Area detectives at 312-747-8273 or email tips to area2tipline@chicagopolice.org.
