The Evansville Police Department is investigating two incidents of attempted theft involving ATMs in Evansville.

According to EPD, the two incidents happened on West Franklin Street late on Thursday night.

One incident took place at the Old National Bank on West Franklin Street, where a male suspect attempted to insert a skimming device into the bank's ATM while also trying to block the security camera with his hand.

EPD says the man's attempt at inserting the skimming device into the machine was unsuccessful.

Just across the street at First Federal Bank, a second incident occurred.

According to police, a suspect attempted to pry open the ATM there but was also unsuccessful.

EPD was at the scene on Friday collecting evidence. They say blood was left at the scene at First Federal Bank.

Right now, police are investigating to see if the incidents are connected, but that remains unconfirmed at this time.

This is a developing story.

We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
