Three juveniles are now in custody after an ATM machine was stolen last week from the Moose Lodge in Gloucester, according to the Gloucester County Sheriff's Office.

On December 20, 2013, the Gloucester County Sheriff's Office received a report of a burglary and a grand larceny that occurred at the Moose Lodge, located in the 6500 Block of George Washington Memorial Highway.

The Moose Lodge reported that sometime between 10:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m., someone entered the closed building through an unsecured door, and stole an ATM machine that was located in the lobby.

Deputies and investigators responded to the scene. The stolen ATM machine was found nearby in a wooded area shortly after the investigation began.

It was determined that access to the machine was gained and an undisclosed amount of cash, more than $200, was stolen from the ATM machine, officials say.

A surveillance camera inside the building was damaged, as well as the ATM Machine.

On December 22, 2013, suspects were identified using the surveillance video. The surveillance video showed three individuals were responsible for the burglary and theft of the ATM Machine.

All three suspects were juveniles, officials say, and were apprehended on December 22. All three juveniles were detained; petitions were obtained for Burglary, Grand Larceny, Felony Damaged Property, and Petit Larceny.

One juvenile was also charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug
paraphernalia, possession of a concealed weapon, and resisting arrest.

All three juveniles were detained and are currently in Merrimac Detention Center. Each of the juveniles are between the ages of 14 and 16, and are Gloucester residents.
