ATM Thieves Target Second Tea Business

tea, sd

Thieves have twice targeted ATMs in the southeast South Dakota town of Tea - a community considering eliminating its police department.

The first attempt was about three months ago at a credit union.

The second happened early Thursday at a grocery store.

Police are not saying whether they believe recent ATM thefts in the area are connected.

Officials in Tea are considering dissolving the city's long-standing police department and relying instead on sheriff's deputies for law enforcement to save money.
