DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An automatic teller machine stolen from the Iowa Events Center in September has been found at the Des Moines International Airport.

Police say an airport employee told police he found an ATM when he was checking the airport grounds shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1CaT9FT ) that police checked the machine’s serial number and found it had been reported stolen from the Iowa Events Center on Sept. 11.

Surveillance video showed a man entering the Iowa Events Center by pushing a potted plant through a glass window, then prying the ATM from the wall.

The man then broke a different glass door to escape. Police found tire tracks in the grass and mud near that door.

Police have not made any arrests.
