Attempted ATM Robbery Lands Lubbock Man Behind Bars
A Lubbock man is behind bars Tuesday night, accused of attempting to steal money from an ATM machine early in the morning.
Police say 46-year-old Lorenzo Richardson, Junior, was tampering with the ATM at American State Bank on 1401 Ave. Q around 2:30 Tuesday morning. After a security guard spotted him, Richardson fled but not before the guard says Richardson tried to hit him with a crowbar.
Richardson was arrested a few minutes later. He's charged with aggravated robbery and possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
