FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (12/6/12)--An explosion at an ATM Wednesday outside the Fredericksburg, Va., branch of Virginia CU resulted in no one being hurt, but caused the credit union to be evacuated and closed.
The ATM sustained some scorch marks and damage, but remained intact and functioning, Fredericksburg Police said (fredericksburg.com Dec. 5).
A representative from the $2.33 billion asset, Richmond, Va.-based credit union called police at 9 a.m.--about 15 minutes after a nearby resident phoned the credit union and reported she heard an explosion at the credit union building at 4 a.m., the publication said.
The explosion set off car alarms in a nearby apartment complex, the caller said. Although she saw a figure close to the credit union, she was too far away to provide an accurate description of the person to police.
Police later confirmed via the credit union's security video that an explosive device detonated about 4 a.m., the publication said. Police reviewed the video and used a canine trained in explosives at the scene.
