TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect has been arrested in connection with a series of ATM explosions in Tacoma, Spanaway and Lacey.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday afternoon on Facebook that a suspect had been arrested after an ATM explosion at a Wells Fargo Bank in Tacoma at about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The sheriff’s office says a Tacoma police officer heard the explosion and that officers found an ATM that had been destroyed.

Several hours later, police in Lacey took a 38-year-old man into custody after a short high speed chase and use of a police dog.

The sheriff’s office says a Spanaway ATM was destroyed in an explosion in late March, another ATM was found on fire on April 3 in Tacoma and an ATM exploded in Lacey April 4.
