POLSON, Mont. (AP) - The Lake County attorney has filed a felony theft charge against a Lakeside man suspected of stealing an automated teller machine from a Polson bank in late January.

KERR-AM reports Steven Eschenbacher filed the information against 32-year-old Cory Robert Franklin on Thursday.

Franklin was arrested in Flathead County on Feb. 5 on several charges, including suspicion of stealing a pickup truck that was used in the ATM theft. He remained jailed there on Friday.

Court records say the ATM theft netted $24,000. The money has not been recovered.

Polson police are looking for a second suspect in the ATM theft, but he has not been identified.

Police said the two suspects had cased Polson area banks prior to the Jan. 30 theft.
