Third Suspect Captured After ATM Heist

8/1/2008
 
A third suspect allegedly connected to a local automatic teller machine (ATM) heist was captured in South Carolina.

Nasedra Kewon Lumpkin, 32, was arrested in Richland County, S.C. and booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center following a traffic stop on July 30, 2008. Lumpkin was wanted for eluding law enforcement after an attempted ATM heist that took place on July 20, 2008 at the Bank of America located at 5676 Thomasville Road.

The investigation began on July 17, 2008 when FDLE received information alleging that Lumpkin may be in the Tallahassee area for the purpose of committing burglaries to ATM machines. On July 20th at approximately 5 a.m., Lumpkin and his accomplices, Dekevious JaJaun McRae and Lewis Lavon Browning, used a stolen Dodge Ram pickup truck and a front end loader to remove the freestanding ATM machine from the ground and move it to the pickup truck.

As FDLE agents arrived on scene, Lumpkin, who was operating the front end loader, fled the area in the stolen Dodge Ram truck. A short distance later, he abandoned the truck and escaped into the woods.

McRae and Browning were apprehended and charged with Grand Theft, Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and Loitering and Prowling.

Lumpkin was charged with Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle, Burglary of a Structure, Grand Theft and Attempting to Elude an Officer.

The investigation is continuing.
