Kansas State University Police are investigating a theft of a utility terrain vehicle and money from an ATM at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
The incidents reportedly occurred in the early morning hours between Dec. 26 and Dec. 29. The stolen UTV (or Gator) was last seen on the east side of the stadium around 6:30 a.m. Dec. 27. Police say a suspect was last seen with a different UTV with an attached trailer on the west side of the stadium in a residential area around 5 a.m. Dec. 29. The second UTV was later returned by the suspect that morning.
The money taken from the ATM included bills in $10 and $20 denominations that may smell of cleaning solution and may have a yellow tint. The dried bills may be brittle but wrinkled.
K-State Police have released photos of two suspects, vehicles in and around the area at the time of the incident, cash left at the scene, and a stock photo of the stolen UTV.
Police request that anyone with information about these cases call 785-532-6412 or email email@example.com. Police are especially interested in home security video and witness accounts from the neighborhood surrounding the stadium that may have recorded or witnessed any related activity.
Original story Thursday 5 p.m.
Kansas State University Police are investigating a theft from an on-campus money dispenser.
Police say several $20 and $10 bills, totaling less than $200 were taken sometime between Dec. 26 and Dec. 31. Police are currently working on a suspect description and reviewing surveillance images to find the party or parties responsible. Detective Ryan Runyan tells KMAN all the bills will be yellow in color due to having cleaning and disinfectant fluid soaked on the paper currency. K-State Police are requesting if you know of anyone that is attempting to or that has circulated clean smelling, yellow fresh bills to contact them at 785-532-6412.
Police say it is entirely possible the suspect(s) may attempt to wash the bills, in which case the fresh, uncirculated bills may appear faded, as if having been washed many times over to get rid of the yellow discolor.
It is unclear what dispenser the bills were stolen from. Police plan to release more information as their investigation continues.
