Crime Trackers: Suspect wanted in rash of cash machine thefts

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON- Thieves are cashing in on a sitting target, as cash machines are being vandalized and sometimes stolen.

It’s a rash of thefts that Pima County Sheriff's investigators are on the verge of solving, but they just need a little help from you.

PCSD Burglary Detective Hans Goritz is investigating some of the thefts that began in February. He said those thefts caused thousands and thousands of dollars in damage to people's property.

An apartment complex on Ina was vandalized and the machine was not replaced. Just down the road, the thieves went back three times to another complex.

“There's been a series of these where they're either breaking into the machines, or they are actually stealing the whole machine,” Det. Goritz said.

Detective Goritz said there's been 15 thefts throughout the area since February.

A laundromat at First and Grant was hit a few months ago.  The owner spent a lot of money to get security boxes placed over the machines, but it's the surveillance camera recording that caught Detective Goritz’s attention.

The recording is from June 14 at 4:30 a.m. and the man on the screen is Christopher Allison.

“All sources say he was at the incident where we released photos from, that show a truck," said Det. Goritz.  "There's some damage to one of the machines.  And I would actually call him a suspect in this case.”

According to the Arizona Department of Corrections website, Allison was released in April and was serving time for burglary, auto theft, and drug charges.

“Family members don't know where he's at and some of the community members just don't know where he's at,” said Det. Goritz.

Christopher Allison is described as 32 years old, 5 foot 6 inches tall, 165 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes.  

PCSD is asking anyone with information on Allison's whereabouts to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
