PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Pittsfield Police Department is reporting a new scam circulating by text message:

PPD has received several phone calls from citizens concerned about a text message that they had received. The text message is from the Credit Union Center and it is an alert that their credit card was going to be deactivated. It asks that they call 413-347-3925 and enter their 16-digit credit card number. Once the number is entered they'll speak to someone who asks for their pin to verify the account. This is a scam.

If you have suffered a financial loss because of this scam please file an online report or contact the Detective Bureau at 413-448-9705.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Police are investigating a series of ATM thefts.

Three businesses have had their ATM stolen in the last two months. The first occurred in June when two men broke into Porter's Variety Store on Pecks Road and carried the cash machine out of the store.

The second incident occurred last Wednesday when a man used a hand truck to carry an ATM out Casey's Billiards on Dalton Avenue, loaded it into an open car trunk and drove off at about 6:30 a.m. The surveillance video from that robbery is available below.

Bill's Top of the Hill Citgo on West Housatonic Street was broken into in the early hours of Monday. Surveillance showed two men loading the ATM into a pickup truck.

Also on Saturday morning, Teo's restaurant on East Street was broken into and surveillance video shows a single person attempting to steal the ATM with a hand truck. The suspect escaped without the machine.
