Fresno nonprofit robbed, vandalized by same criminals 3 times in last 6 months

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — Volunteers with a Valley nonprofit are frustrated and tired after being targeted by brazen burglars multiple times in the past 6 months.

Security cameras captured the suspects stealing an entire ATM from the Fresno Moose Lodge 445.

Two men can be seen walking around the building at Dakota and Chestnut just before 6 a.m. Friday.

They then back their truck into glass doors, smash and open them, and tear the entire ATM apart.

A neighboring business recorded the men taking off and stopping to push the machine further into the pickup bed.

The property says the same people broke in in March through a side gate and stole about 20 cases of beer.

Then in May, they say thieves took alcohol from behind the bar and a man tore a jukebox off the wall.

The Moose Lodge says what hurts the most is that the crimes are affecting their ability to raise money.

They are currently fundraising to send firefighters to the 911 memorial and their charity called Moose Heart helps give local children opportunities for higher education.

“That’s the frustrating part, that’s where I start to get choked up, is that they’re stealing from the kids, and that’s hard to swallow,” says president Michael Boltz.

This latest crime came even after the nonprofit upgraded its security.

Police tell us they are aware of two incidents, but no leads yet on possible suspects.
