The Lombard Police Department is reminding residents to use precautions and to stay aware of your surroundings when using ATM’s due to recent crime activity in nearby communities.

Several ATM robberies have recently been reported in suburban areas near Lombard and in the Chicagoland area. These similar events include reports that offenders approach vehicles at ATM’s during night hours, and use a weapon to force victims to withdraw cash. Offenders have been reported to have entered a victim’s car through open doors in at least one occasion.

Lombard Police Chief Ray Byrne offers these tips to help stay safe while using ATM’s:
• Try to plan ahead and use ATM’s during the daylight hours.
• When approaching the ATM either on foot, or in a car, be aware of your surroundings and stay alert.
• Lock your doors before pulling up to an ATM so no one will be able to enter your vehicle.
• If something looks suspicious, leave immediately and dial 9-1-1.

“We want our residents be safe,” said Lombard Police Chief Raymond Byrne. “If you see something suspicious, please don’t hesitate to contact us by dialing 9-1-1.”
