A man will face sentencing after pleading guilty to the thefts of ATMs from businesses on the NSW North Coast and South-east Queensland between August 2016 and March 2017.
Craig Connell pleaded guilty in Lismore District Court yesterday (September 10) to multiple offences, including the theft of three ATMs and property valued at more than $100,000.
The 51-year-old from Goonellabah will be sentenced in November and has had bail refused.
Strike Force Fedore, established to investigate the offences, has so far resulted in four search warrants and seen the recovery of one ATM from the Tweed River using NSW police divers.
Strike Force Fedore is continuing to investigate the whereabouts of the stolen proceeds. No money has been recovered.
