When running a criminal history on the man, police found that he had been convicted of felony firearms possession in 2008 and felony assault with a dangerous weapon in 1994, the report said.

Damage reported to ATM at PNC Bank
When police arrived, they noticed the ATM attached to the building had a broken cash withdrawal door, but did not have visible pry marks, the report said. The screen on the ATM also appeared to be frozen, the report said.
According to the report, the cash inside the machine appeared intact.
When bank security and police looked at the security footage two hours later, someone was observed struggling with the ATM, but it wasn’t clear whether it was the person who called in about the broken ATM. Bank officials said the cash door might not have been broken intentionally by someone, but might have gotten jammed. Bank officials conducted repairs on the ATM that day, the report said.
